114th Central Mine Reunion and Cornish Tea
Central, MI 49950
Descendants of Central mining families gather each year, on the last Sunday in July, at the old Methodist Episcopal Church for the Central Reunion. The services are at 9 am and 11 am. Cornish Tea at Central Visitor Center at 10 am - 1 pm.
The church, erected in 1868, with its distinctive battlement tower reflecting the Cornish ancestry of many Central families, closed in 1903. It is reopened on each Reunion Sunday for a service of tribute to the hardy pioneers of all faiths from all the early copper mines that dotted Keweenaw County. Please feel free to come and visit. Visit the Central Mine Methodist Church web site for information on the Reunion and church history.
