Gas Lite General Store
The Gas Lite General Store has been a favorite part of Copper Harbor for decades. The store is now under new ownership, but the new owner, Stacy Gibson, has been a part of the Gas Lite family for years. She is interested in maintaining the traditions and practices that make the Gaslight so popular but also has a couple of new ideas, including opening a mini golf course nearby.
“The store’s been open since the ’60s, but I purchased it in February and I had worked here for 14 years prior to that. In 2011, I opened an 18-hole miniature golf course on the other end of town,” said Gibson. ” ... There used to be one many years ago, a little nine-hole golf course. Some of the props that I have are from that origi- nal course. I’ve heard people talk about it from when they were kids playing there and had great memories of it and I thought it would be a great addition to the town to resurrect the mini golf. It’s been very well received.” Offering something for everyone, the mini golf course has an adjacent gar- den and lounge where even those who aren’t interested in golf can catch a few minutes of peace and quiet or wait for their friends and family to finish a hole.
Into the Woods Mini Golf and
Gardens is located at 1028 Gratiot Street in Copper Harbor. For more information, find them on Facebook or call (906) 289-4370 between noon and 8 p.m. Monday through Sunday.
