About Michigan

Michigan

Michigan is in the upper Midwest and the heart of the Great Lakes region. It has many attractions, famous landmarks, and scenic state and national parks and forests. In addition to the “great ones”, it has about 12,000 inland lakes, 38 deep-water ports, more miles of coastline than any state but Alaska, and more lighthouses than any other U.S. state. Its agriculture features tourist-friendly fare such as cherries, blueberries, peaches, apples, and wine. And its cities include a major metropolis, some university towns, and countless rustic villages. The state is geographically unique, being comprised of two major peninsulas, and it can be further divided into five distinct areas. They are the Upper Peninsula, (known to Michiganders as "The U.P."), Northern Michigan (Big Rapids and Northwards), Western Michigan (along the sandy coast of Lake Michigan), Central Michigan or "Mid-Michigan" and the Southeast or "Downstate".

The Lower Peninsula has the majority of the population (primarily in the south), while the Upper Peninsula, separated by Lake Michigan and a bit of Lake Huron, is mostly rural. Until 1957, the only way to drive from one to the other was to go all the way around Lake Michigan, or take your car onto a ferry. Michigan's economy was previously dominated by the auto industry, but has diversified somewhat as that and other traditional manufacturing industries have moved their facilities elsewhere, and it's beginning to attract more information technology, life sciences, and high-tech manufacturing jobs. Tourism is a growing segment of the economy, focusing in winter on activities in the snow, and in summer on the State's extensive beaches, lakes, and rivers. Hunting, fishing, and sailing are also popular outdoor activities

85 Acre Riverfront on Michigamme River, 1400 + / - frontage, Republic, MI, 1116605

Republic, Marquette County, Michigan


MICHIGAN RIVERFRONT PROPERTY FOR SALE!! This 85 +/- Acre parcel has 1400+ Feet of beautiful Michigamme River frontage, and is located 2.5 Miles south of South Republic, in south western Marquette County, in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The village of Republic grew up around the Republic Mine which first operated from 1872 to 1926. The original town name was Iron City, which was changed to Republic by Mr. Ed Breitung, the founder or the mine, in 1880. He named it Republic for "the land of the free and the home of the brave". In the late 1950's, open pit and crushing concentration facilities were established at the mine site. Approximately 1.5 million tons of concentrated iron ore pellets were shipped annually to our nation's steel mills. In 1982, national economic conditions forced inactivation of the mine. Today, this inactive iron mine has an observation stand near the pit's edge that provides the opportunity for viewing the magnitude of the enormous 600-feet deep, 250 acre Pit. It's hard to imagine that this gigantic hole was once a 200 foot cliff rising from the banks of the Michigamme River! The section of the river on the property being offered for sale, is rated a Type 1 Fishing Stream, and there are excellent catches of Bass, Panfish, Pike, and Walleye here. There is a gently slope to the water's edge, so you can launch your kayak, canoe, or tube, and swim right from the banks of this property! Just up-river about four miles from this parcel is access to 2300 acres of the Republic Mine Reclamation and Wetlands Preserve. This restoration is so successful that you can view and photograph species such as Sandhill cranes, Peregrine falcons, Gray wolf, Bald eagles, Black bear, Bobcats, and Coyotes that now frequent this site. The western trailhead for the Iron Ore Heritage Trail is few miles to the north in Republic. This is a 48-mile, multi-use, year round trail that stretches from Republic to the east side of Marquette. This trail is designed for walkers, bikers, runners, nature lovers, equestrians, cross-country skiers, snowshoers, and those interested in the Marquette Iron Range mining history. The western border of the property is adjacent to thousands of acres of Corporate CFA Land for walk-in access to hunting, trapping, and fishing. For Winter Enthusiasts, the main North-South Snowmobile Trail #5 is a few miles away. The wooded parcel is composed of Balsam fir, Black cherry, Eastern hemlock, Eastern white pine, Northern red oak, Paper birch, Quaking aspen, Red maple, Red pine, Sugar maple, White Spruce, and Yellow birch. A good road system leads to the river. The southeastern corner of the property is located where the Gambles Creek joins the Michigamme River. In addition to the great river frontage, there is a large pond on the property to enjoy. If you are looking for a quality property where you can enjoy four seasons of U.P. recreational fun, call for your private tour today!
