Michigan 80-Acre Grand Traverse Bay Area Recreational Parcel For Sale! This wooded property is located in NW Houghton County, in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Also located just a couple miles south of the Keweenaw County Line, this area is known for the Grand Traverse Bay Harbor on Lake Superior, which is located at the mouth of the Traverse River. There are two parallel piers; the north pier 871 feet long and the south pier 567 feet long. An entrance between the piers is 50 feet wide and 12 feet deep; and the harbor basin is 10 feet. The harbor services primarily commercial fishing and recreational navigation interests. Big Traverse Bay is now an Historic District, which stands where the original logging camp owned by the Hebard Lumber Company is located. A substantial number of Finnish emigres moved into the area, working in the lumber, mining, or fishing industries. By 1920, Big Traverse Bay had developed into a primarily fishing community. in the 1950s, construction of the breakwater and changes to the harbor resulted in the demolition of a number of houses, as well as a footbridge across the river. The community remains an active, and relatively isolated, fishing community. Just across the road from the property is the Schoolcraft Township Park, located on Lake Superior. It has a playground, white sandy beaches, Juneberry trees, grills, bathrooms, lighthouse, and mink farm. The 80 acre parcel consists of some woods, and open areas. A small creek running through the property provides habitat for lots of wildlife, such as bald eagles, sand hill cranes, beaver, geese, ducks, and whitetail deer. There is great blueberry picking in the nearby areas. Fall colors make autumn a nice time to visit. This property would need to be rezoned for buildings and dwellings. Call for an appointment today!
