Irons - Eden Township, Michigan
Eden Township is located on the near northwestern border of Lake County. It contains the community of Irons, a seasonal tourist town that in the summer attracts many visitors to its horse arena and surrounding recreation areas. Almost the entire township is contained in the Manistee National Forest.
There are many recreational opportunities here including camping, hiking, fishing, swimming, snowmobiling, to name a few.
Fishing is especially good at the Little Manistee River which flows through the southern portion of the township.
This township was first settled in 1877 when the lumber town of Willville, later renamed Eden, was built. Shortly afterwards, the Chicago & Western Michigan Railroad, (Later the Pere Marquette) built a line to the area. Irons was begun in 1894, named after the Irons family, early settlers to the area.
