In operation for almost one hundred years, the Quincy Mine is a historic site in Hancock, Michigan treasured for its industrial past. It was opened in 1846 and was owned by the Quincy Mining Company.

The Quincy Mine is composed of a series of structures needed to operate a massive copper mine. It was best known for having the world?s deepest shaft and the world?s largest steam-driven mine host. The shaft measures 9260 feet and is known as the Quincy Number 2. The Nordberg Steam Hoist was very efficient and helped save fuel costs.

Today, the Quincy Mine is a well known tourist attraction under the care of the Quincy Mine Hoist Association. Guided tours are available for visitors through various parts of the complex.
