MICHIGAN HUNTING CABIN ON 240-ACRE WOODED PARCEL FOR SALE! This property is located (in Deer Management Unit 121) in Thompson Township, which is located in the western quarter of Schoolcraft County in the central U.P. of Michigan. This 98,125 acre township is comprised of private, state and federal land. It has approximately 20 miles of shoreline along the northern edge of Lake Michigan and it borders Indian Lake, which is the fourth largest in the state. Lake Michigan is one of the five Great Lakes of North America and is the second-largest of the Great Lakes by volume and the third-largest by surface area. The word Michigan originally referred to the lake itself, and is believed to come from the Ojibwa word Mishi Gami meaning Great Water. Its ninety some thousand acres of water, offer a fisherman's dream come true. Add to this an aggressive fish management program and you have some of the best fishing in the USA. This area had virgin forests and plenty of timber and became important in the Upper Peninsula's lumber boom. By 1881, the Delta Lumber Company was operating a mill (about 6 miles north-east of the property Offered For Sale) along the shores of Lake Michigan. The Village of Thompson named after the mill Owner and President E.L. Thompson was formed about this time. The first official census was taken in 1884. The township at large was recorded with 330 people and the Village was 207, for a total count of 537. By the early 1900’s, the Township had 8 schools, a general store, township hall, 3 churches (Catholic, Swedish Lutheran and Methodist), a barber shop, boarding house, livery stable, a hotel, saloons and a hospital. There were 3 doctors, and a midwife. Thompson Township has a small commercial area along the US-2 corridor, which includes two motels, a convenience/gas station store, a real estate office, church, and a variety store/lumber yard. The area is central to lots of year-round activities. You can camp or canoe in the summer, snowmobile or ice fish in the winter, or enjoy a fall color tour during the autumn.
