Mastodon Township 49902
Iron County, Michigan
Mastodon Township Population: 2000(668) 1990(654) Change(14)
Mastodon Township is located in southern Iron County, bordering Florence County, Wisconsin at the Brule River. It contains the village of Alpha, where the township hall is located. This is a rural, marshy area with several creeks, small lakes and freshwater flooding areas that flow into the Brule.
This community originated as an iron mining town when Alfred Breitung from Marquette opened the Mastodon Mine here in 1882 - apparently naming it after the huge prehistoric beast -- perhaps a metaphor of the size of iron-mining operations in the area at the time. The town was originally named after the mine and remained open under that name until 1888.
