Welcome to Laurium's new official village website.

This website will serve as your link to information and happenings in the Village of Laurium.

Home of "The Gipper"

Laurium is known for the legend of George Gipp. The mere mention of his name brings to mind the immortal words "win one for the Gipper". Gipp has been enshrined in the National Football and Michigan Halls of Fame and more recently in the Upper Peninsula Sports Hall of Fame.

Dogs Running Loose

There have been a number of dogs running loose recently in the village limits.  You are responsible for keeping your dog leashed when outside. There are trails you can take your pet to and let them run free under your control such as the new Woodland Rd. trail that's part of the Swedetown ski trail system, or at Calumet lake. However, in the Village of Laurium, all dogs must be leashed when outside. All violations will result in the LPD bringing the animal to the animal alliance in Houghton (regardless of whether or not they have a collar).
