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.

Night Parking Ordinance

Beginning November 1, 2020 through April 30, 2021, all vehicles parking on village streets between the hours of 2:00AM and 7:00AM will be ticketed and/or towed at the owner's expense.


Due to the health concerns regarding the COVID-19 outbreak, the Village of Laurium is asking that business be conducted by mail using PO Box 627, phone (906)337-1600 or in the newly added DROP BOX outside the front doors of the village hall. This will help our employees and the public keep safe from the spread of infection.
