MICHIGAN WATERFRONT HOME AND CABIN ON 1,000 +/- ACRES OF LAND FOR SALE!! This property is located in Ontonagon and Carp Lake Townships in Ontonagon County - in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. (The County is named after the Ontonagon River. The name derived from an Ojibwa language word Nondon-organ, meaning hunting river. A French transliteration, Nantounagon, identified the river on a 1670 French map. Alternatively, it is said to be derived from the Ojibwa onagon, which means dish or bowl.) The parcel offered for sale is in the Green District, a small district that extends southward from Lake Superior, about seven miles west of Ontonagon. M-64 borders the lakeshore, crossing the district east to west. Recreational homes line the north lakeshore side of M-64, and a mix of seasonal recreational and year-round homes are on the south side. Tourists pass through this area, and stop and picnic at the screened pavilion at the Green Park (1946) located on the lakeshore near the intersection of M-64 and Townline Road. Green grew out of the lumber boom that occurred along the Lake Superior shore during the 1890s. The community of Green was a hub for logging operations in the adjacent woodlands. In an effort to entice settlers into the area, the McMillan Company began selling sections of cutover acreage near their camp to Finnish immigrants as early as 1903. The Greenwood Lumber Company made the settlement a model company town. New housing for employees, a general store, and a Finnish Lutheran church were constructed around the company Camp No. 2. With more families relocating to the area, two schools were built to accommodate the growing community. The main route is M-64 which runs along Lake Superior, and from there roads extend south to inland farms. By the 1920s, the Finnish and eastern European settlers in the area had firmly established their farms. Farming declined after World War II as children moved away to larger communities. Today there are still agricultural and recreational land available, and the gently rolling landscape is filled with wooded and open areas. Lake Superior to the north, and thousands of nearby acres of Corporate CFA and State of Michigan Lands offer opportunities for hunting, trapping, and fishing! The west end of Multi-Use State Trail No. 12 runs along LP Walsh Road! Porcupine Mountain Wilderness State Park is a short drive to the west. This park encompasses 60,000 acres of secluded lakes and miles of wild rivers and streams in virgin forests. Camping, hiking, alpine and cross-country skiing is available here. Thousands of acres of Ottawa National Forest lands are a few miles to the east. Here there are 3,500 miles of backwoods roads to explore. If you like Big Lake boating and fishing, there is a deep draft recreational port at the Harbor Piers in the nearby Village of Ontonagon. Wooded, the property is forested with American basswood, Balsam fir, Eastern hemlock, Eastern hophornbeam, ... Continued In Addendum
