Upper Peninsula History Conference

The 71st annual Upper Peninsula History Conference has been canceled due to COVID-19 (coronavirus).

The conference was scheduled to be held June 19-21, 2020, in Bay Mills/Brimley, Michigan. It is our hope to replicate this conference and all its content for 2021. Stay tuned to this web page for further details.

This conference moves to a different location in the Upper Peninsula each year to also explore that area’s heritage. In addition, the annual Upper Peninsula History Awards are presented at this conference.
