In the early mining days, when it was first settled in 1856, the site was known as the Lake Superior Location. It took its name from its parent, the Lake Superior Location. In 1862 it took the name of Ishpeming (Chippewa for heaven or high place). Captain Gilbert d. Johnson became its first postmaster on February 17, 1863.

In 1871 this area was incorporated as a village, and as a city in 1873.
