TBD Rousseau Mass City, MI 49948  

MICHIGAN WOODED RECREATIONAL VACANT LAND PARCEL FOR SALE!! This 34-Acre property is located in east central Ontonagon County in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan - where camping and outdoor recreation, over the years, has provided relaxation for many! The property is located about two miles south-east of the Village of Mass City, on the Rousseau Road which follows the path of an old Railroad Grade of the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad. Ontonagon County is named after the Ontonagon River and said to be derived from a Native American word Nondon-organ, meaning hunting river. The name first appeared as a name for a river called Nantounagon on a 1670 French map. Alternatively, it is said to be derived from the Ojibwa onagon, which means dish or bowl. Just 4+ miles south, down the road is a popular entrance to the Ottawa National Forest. This forest covers 988,000 acres and provides public access to lakes, rivers and streams, waterfalls, wetlands, old growth forests, as well as wildlife - whitetail deer, bear, and birds are abundant. A short distance away are several streams, the Firesteel River, and the Ontonagon River, for some excellent trout fishing. Trail No. 12, a main East-West Multi-Use State Trail, passes right by the property for miles and miles of trails for motorized outdoor enthusiasts. If you love mining history, Mass City/Greenland and the fabulous Adventure Copper Mine is in this vicinity and now offers underground tours. Old copper mine workings dot the Mass bluffs. Most are accessible only by poor roads. Rockland Mines and Townsite mines are a short drive away, and two of the richest copper mines in the county, the National and the Minnesota are also located near by. Not much remains of either except for their “rock” piles, but the persistent and perceptive explorer can find locations that whisper the work of our ancestors. The parcel offered for sale is about half Open Fields, and half Wooded. Trees Common In The Area Include: American basswood, Balsam fir, Eastern hemlock, Green ash, Northern white cedar, Quaking aspen, Red maple, Sugar maple, White ash, and Yellow birch. If you are looking for a nice rural parcel for your U.P. Cabin or Year-round home, call to arrange you private tour today!
