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

Country Home on Acreage

Ontonagon, Ontonagon County, Michigan


MICHIGAN COUNTRY HOME ON ACREAGE FOR SALE! The 76 +/- Acre Homestead being offered for sale is located in north-east Ontonagon County west of the Village of Greenland, in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan! - Ojibwa people were the first to occupy this region prior to European exploration. By the early 1600s, French trappers began entering the territory. The first written report about Ontonagon County and its copper was made in 1661 by a French Jesuit missionary, Father René Mesnard. - In 1665, Father Claude Allouez reported about the now famous Ontonagon Boulder: a boulder of pure copper, which was located on the West Branch of the Ontonagon River and venerated by the local Indians. The 3,700-pound boulder now resides in the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. - The 1850s saw mining spread to the Greenland and Mass City areas, and the county supplied much of the copper for the U.S. Government during the Civil War. - In the 1880s, large-scale lumber production for white pine began and continued for nearly 2 decades. By the late 1890s, copper production again boomed and production continued through World War I, but metal prices collapsed after the war and most mines soon closed. - Since the 1920's Agriculture became significant to the local economy, along with lumber production. The Ottawa National Forest was established in 1931, and the nearby Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park was established in 1945. Today a mix of agriculture, timber production, and tourism prevails! - Year-round outdoor recreation now contributes significantly to the local economy making this a great place to live and play. - The property offered for sale has been harvested and is enrolled in the Michigan CFA Program, and there is additional Corporate CFA Lands to the west and south that provide walk-in access "In Season" for hunting, trapping, and fishing. Black bear, Whitetail deer, and Geese hunting is excellent here! A tributary of Paddy's Creek runs along the western border of the property and attracts wildlife to this property year round.

MICHIGAN PRIVATE LAKE LOT FOR SALE! - Lot 27 is a 2.85 Acre wooded parcel which has 416 feet of frontage on a beautiful bay of Upper Peninsula's Fence Lake! Fence Lake is a private, pristine spring fed lake that is located in Spurr Township, in eastern Baraga County.
