The Eagle Harbor General Store is open for business!
The Eagle Harbor Social Aid and Pleasure Club
at the former Eagle Harbor General Store in Keweenaw County, Michigan, will host a selection of innovative cultural events, art workshops and exhibitions in the summer and fall of 2016. Programs will focus on the artifacts, mementos, historical photos and ledgers in the Store’s collection as inspiration for creative responses in the arts. Keweenaw County history can be told as a story of nature, industrialization, post-industrialization, as well as the vibrant native and immigrant communities that made this rocky landscape part of the unique heritage of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Visitors to the Eagle Harbor General Store encounter this rich history in an environment shaped by memory and reinterpreted through contemporary cultural activities.
