Wrap yourself up in a blanket of bright stars, clean air and open water.
Hancock is a community that brings together small-town values, rich history and a four-season wonderland for outdoor enthusiasts — without the long commute times or congested highways. The Keweenaw is home to two universities — Michigan Technological University and Finlandia University. The community benefits from the diversity, culture and high standards of living contributed to our small town. We often call the Keweenaw the "Copper Country" because of the amount of natural "float" copper found in the area. In fact, at 90% pure, much of the copper is the purest copper in the world.
Welcome, to the Keweenaw Peninsula!
