Historic School at Gay
In 2009 the Keweenaw County Historical Society took over the property and began extensive repair and restoration work. The school has become a museum telling the story of the town of Gay and the impact of the Mohawk and Wolverine Copper Mining Companies mills on the town of Gay and the environment. It also tells the story of commercial lumber and fishing in the area.
The first floor of the school contains a restored classroom as well as these example of early Keweenaw transportation: A horse drawn buggy, a sleigh, and a 1908 Jewell, one of the first horseless carriages in the Keweenaw. The second floor of the school contains a room full of looms, including this historic one from Gay Industries.
