Beautiful 46 Acre Upper Michigan Homestead for sale! This property is located south of historic Bruce Crossing in Ontonagon County. In 1845 an overland mail route was established from Green Bay, Wisconsin to Ontonagon Village. It provided winter service and became a designated wagon route (The Military Road). Construction of the road began in 1863, and a relay station was built in 1868 for men working on the road?s construction. This was the birth of Bruce Crossing. Logging companies and their camps followed. The Diamond Match Company obtained timber rights in the area by the 1880s and maintained many camps. Railroads reached the area by late 1880. The founding and operation of the numerous sawmills along the Baltimore River caused Bruce Crossing to take on a greater sense of permanence. The first Settler was August Neuman, who built a sawmill there. The first permanent structure built was Donald Bruce?s hotel, store, and saloon, to house railroad workers. The community was named Bruce's Crossing on March 5, 1888, and was shortened to Bruce Crossing in 1891. Farming and Logging coexisted in the area. Men working in the logging camps harvested timber during the winter months, and returned to their farms in the summer. The property being offered for sale is located just three miles south of Bruce Crossing. It is gently rolling and has open fields, and acres of Birch, Pine, Hemlock, Oak and Maple forest. A tributary of the East Branch of the Baltimore River runs along the west, and a large pond attracts wildlife to this property. This habitat makes it an excellent hunting area for Whitetail deer and Black bear. The Baltimore flows into the Ontonagon River, which hosts Brookies, Browns, and Rainbow trout. You can leave this property and explore U.P. recreational opportunities in every direction! Access to Trails Number 3 and 8 is just three+ miles to the east.
