About Main Street Calumet

Main Street Calumet

Main Street Calumet was founded in 2003 as a result of community interest in historic preservation spurred by the presence of Keweenaw National Historical Park (est. 1992). Our program is a small part of a much larger group of Main Street Programs across the country. We follow guidelines laid out by the National Main Street program to find ensure our program is a success. Over the past 14 years Main Street Calumet has created multiple events such as Pasty Fest, Copper Dog 150, the Red Jacket Jamboree and hosted a variety of community programs such as small business seminars and the Main Street Calumet Farmer's Market.

The Main Street Calumet Mission

The mission of Main Street Calumet is to guide the revitalization of an exciting and vibrant historic downtown district that is attractive to residents and visitors. In the process the program will forge partnerships, foster development of community leaders, and facilitate the rehabilitation/restoration of its buildings and spaces to be occupied by an economically successful mix of business services and residents.

The Main Street Calumet Vision

The vision of Main Street Calumet is to become the community where people most want to visit and live. Healthy commercial and residential districts will satisfy the needs of a diverse population and interests while continuing to express the local copper mining heritage through preservation, education, and cultural events.
