Keweenaw Mountain Lodge is special. The Lodge and Golf Course were built during the Depression as a public works program. Built in a similar style as other Grand Historic Lodges, it is listed on the National and State Registries of Historic Places. Keweenaw County has owned and operated the facility for over 80 years. During the recent years, an expansion project added a 6,000 Sq. Ft. conference and event center, as well as debt service for the County. The auction will allow a buyer the privilege of owning this piece of history while eliminating contractual financial obligations for the County.
