Farm Features & Description
Michigan Cabin-Home For Sale Near The Historic Village of Rockland! Located in central Ontonagon County in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, this settlement is in an area rich in mining history. When pure copper was discovered in the 1840's, hundreds of explorers poured into the area. The Rockland Mine opened in 1847, and by the 1890's thousands of inhabitants lived in the area. As the mines closed down in the early 20th-Century, the population changed from miners to farmers. Today area tourists are offered historic mine tours at the Adventure Mine, actual digging experiences at the Caledonia Mine, and a glimpse of how actual miners and their families lived at the Old Victoria Dam, Falls, and Restoration Site. Ontonagon County has hundreds of waterfalls - Irish Rapids Falls is 2-miles north of this cabin, and Grand Rapids Falls is only 4-miles to the North-West. Snowmobiling is super, and the area is called "Big Snow Country" because of its record annual snowfallsThe Bill Nicholls Trail is less than a mile away, and in the summer you can ride horseback or ATV's on this trail.
