The village of Champion is nestled in and around a small valley near the eastern end of Lake Michigamme in the central portion of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Located about 30 miles west of Marquette along US-41/M-28, our small, quiet town of approximately 250 full-time residents was once a bustling iron mining center of 2500 people in the late 1800's and early 1900's.

The first settlers were English iron miners from Cornwall and French woodsmen from Canada, who took jobs at the new Champion Mine. By 1900 a new wave of immigrants, led by the Scandinavians, Germans, Italians, Irish, and Finns had arrived and quickly established Champion as a vital railroad, mining, logging, and farming center.
