Markey Township is located on the northeast coastline of beautiful Houghton Lake in central Roscommon County in Michigan. This township is a major section of the greater Houghton Lake area, known for its popularity as a year-round water sports and recreation area.. A drive along County Rd. #100 provides good views of the lake and easy access to cottages and resorts, as well as the county airport and township offices. There are also a few marinas and channels in this area, including the Cut River, that provide access to the lake from inland cottages.
This area was first settled around 1905 when William Markey came here and started a sawmill. A community grew around the mill to the point where it was large enough to have a post office, which operated from 1906 until 1933.
