Luce County, Michigan

Luce County is located in the northeastern part of Michiganís Upper Peninsula, along the southern shores of Lake Superior. It largely consists of wilderness river country with approximately 40% of it classified as freshwater swampland. It has remained largely undeveloped, with a little over half of it contained in the Lake Superior State Forest.

Luce County is best known for being the home of Tahquamenon Falls, the second largest waterfall east of the Mississippi. The County Seat is Newberry, which contains a variety of resorts, and is a central starting point for fishing, sporting and recreational excursions. Another popular area is the Two Heart River, considered one of Michiganís premiere Trout streams, which flows into Lake Superior at Two Heart, just east of Muskallonge Lake.

Luce County was first developed as a result of the Detroit, Mackinac & Marquette Railroad building a line through here from St. Ignace to Marquette in 1881 for the purpose of transporting lumber. This attracted investor Truman Newberry, who built the Vulcan Furnace Company in the town which was named after him. The county was named after one of Michiganís governors, Cyrus Luce, who served from 1887 to 1890.
