The Quincy Smelting Works is the last of the last, a lone remnant of a vast industrial landscape that once lined the Portage Waterway for miles. Like her shoreline brethren, the Quincy complex existed solely to serve its copper masters, and when the copper empire died she died along with it. As time marched forward the sprawling industrial ruins around her were sacrificed to the region’s new master – tourism. The shoreline on which smelters, foundries, warehouses, and coal docks once stood were transformed to parks, boardwalks, and rows of townhouses. But through it all the Quincy smelter remained. Though battered and bruised and showing her age, the old gal continues to remind us all of the copper country’s rich industrial heritage that still can be found along its shores.
The Quincy Smelting Works Field Guide is your complete guide to this impressive industrial juggernaut. Inside its 100+ pages are featured over 70 buildings, structures and pieces of equipment still found scattered across the complex, including old steam engines, boilers, and smelting tools. Illustrated with over a hundred full color photographs, detailed maps, and drawings. (107 pages, 5.5″x8.5″, 24MB)
