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

The nearest town is Kenton, 6+ miles to the north, an unincorporated community in the southwest part of Houghton County in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. In the late 1800s, when forests covered the area, the Duluth, South Shore, and Atlantic Railroad reached Kenton. After that time much of the surrounding white pine forests were cut and shipped out by rail to all parts of the Country. After the logging heyday, the area became settled by farmers, and today it is a fishing and hunting destination. Kenton is the hub of most of the activity. The Town Hall, Fire Hall, County Maintenance Garage, Kenton District Forest Service Office, Taverns with food service, and nearby resorts keep the town "hopping".

Snowmobile Trail No. 8, and the N-S trail No. 107 converge in the Village of Kenton, only about 6 miles away. Hunting and Trapping is popular here.

107 McClure Dam Rd MLS # 1107397

Negaunee, Marquette County, Michigan


MICHIGAN HISTORIC McCLURE DAM CARE TAKERS CABIN FOR SALE! This Cabin property is located on 202-Feet of The McClure Basin - which is located on the Dead River, in east-central Marquette County, in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. To the Native Americans, the mists arising from the Dead River conveyed the souls of the departed into the unknown, and they named the stream Gi-nibo-manitou-sibi, of Djibis-manitou-sibi meaning The River of The Spirits of The Dead. The French retained the name in Riviere de Morte, translated by Americans into Dead River. The 43.2 mile long river flows southeasterly from western Marquette County to its mouth on Lake Superior. The entire river is a coldwater fishery. The McClure Basin is formed by the McClure dam, a hydroelectric dam which was built above a waterfall located at its eastern end. This basin is the middle of three basins, and is the most dramatic. There are tall rugged hills that surround this artificial lake, and there are rock outcroppings that shoot up from the water! Part of the waterfall is built into the base of the dam. Water sometimes flows over the cement dam, and there is a stream of water that pours out of a pipe over jagged rocks. Rocky bedrock is found at the bottom of the dam, and water flows from there through chutes to the drop another 75 yards, over the rest of the falls. Located dowmstream are the Upper Dead River Falls and Trestle Falls. You will be able to fish for Walleyes, Smallmouth bass, and Pike right from your property, and a peek at the photos will show you that wildlife abounds!

The quaint 1008 Square Foot Bungalow Style cabin was built in 1920s for the Care Takers of the Dam. It features a low pitched four sided hip roof, and a spacious front porch with large columns beneath an extension of the main roof, which typified the styles of the American Arts and Crafts movement popular at that time. Bungalow design in America was greatly influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement among people who had grown tired of the mass-produced and overly ornate architecture of the Victorian Era. They offered low cost, simple living quarters with an artistic touch. The one-story floor plan has minimal space wasted on hallways.
