Announcing the Embassy of the Upper Peninsula

Today, we are announcing the creation and construction of the Embassy of the Upper Peninsula.

Construction will begin September 6, 2016 in Downtown Lansing. We are building an authentic log cabin where we will execute our mission to protect, and promote Upper Peninsula interests through diplomatic relations.

Under the leadership of our Ambassadors we will work diligently to ensure that the Upper Peninsula is fairly represented in legislation and other government initiatives.

The Embassy will act as a refuge to Upper Peninsula legislatures, create Upper Peninsula programming, and be a shining symbol to the people, culture, and history of the Upper Peninsula.

Above all, we will be sure that the words “pasty” and “sauna” never go mispronounced and that the Upper Peninsula is included on every single State of Michigan map.
