8470 Woods Champion, MI 49814

BEAUTIFUL MICHIGAN LOG CABIN ON A PRIVATE LAKE FOR SALE! This 40-Acre wooded property is located on Perch Lake in west-central Humboldt Township, in Marquette County in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Once a bustling iron mining center of over 2,000 residents in the late 1800's and early 1900's, today there are only about 250 residents in the area. The first settlers were English iron miners from Cornwall and French woodsmen from Canada, who took jobs at the new Champion Mine. A wave of immigrants, led by the Scandinavians, Germans, Italians, Irish, and Finns arrived by 1900 and quickly established the nearby Village of Champion as a vital railroad, mining, logging, and farming center.
