Schoolcraft County, Michigan

Schoolcraft County, Michigan

Schoolcraft County is located in the mid-eastern section of Michiganís Upper Peninsula, along the northern shoreline of Lake Michigan. It was named after Henry Rowe Schoolcraft, who was the first Indian Agent for the State of Michigan in the 1830ís, and a major explorer and platter of Michiganís undeveloped land at that time. Although known history in this area dates back to 1634, when Father Francis Baraga established a mission here, archeological findings have discovered people to have lived in the land back to 500 BC.

Once a major timber source at the turn of the century, dominated by Chicago lumber barons, Schoolcraft County has become a popular tourist area today. Interesting places to see include the Siphon Bridge in Manistique, the County Seat, Indian Lake, Seney Wildlife Reservation, Palms Book State Park and Kitch-Iti-Kipi, Michigan's largest natural spring which produces crystal clear water. There are also many lakes and streams for fishing and canoeing, not to mention the pristine beaches along the Lake Michigan coastline.
