Hanka Finnish Museum - L'Anse, Michigan

The Hanka Finnish Homestead Museum


hankaNot so long ago there was only one road that went West away from Keweenaw Bay.  If you take that road today you can visit the Hanka Finnish Homestead Museum and step back in time to the 1880's.  The Hanka Farm has been restored and volunteers are busy preserving this monument to our homesteading heritage.

The Finnish immigrant farm museum opened in 1985 and operates during the summer months. The museum brings to life for visitors and local residents early settlement conditions.  Yes, there is even a sauna there.

Location: Follow signs from US 41 or corner of M-38 & Pelkie Road to Arnheim Rd. The Hanka Homestead is located well off the beaten path in its original setting. Don't panic; enjoy the scenic drive on this Michigan back road.
