Upper Michigan Riverfront Property! This residential building parcel is located on 110 feet of the Falls River, by the Village of L'Anse, in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. The Village of L'Anse is in north-central Baraga County on the southern end of Lake Superior's Keweenaw Bay. This area is rich in history, and was settled first by native Americans. Even though there were fur traders here before, French Jesuit Priest Father Rene Menard was the first white person on record to arrive in 1660. Later the area was visited and settled by French explorers, trappers, loggers, and missionaries. A Jesuit mission and fur trading post was established and the village grew up around it. L'Anse Township was established in 1846, and the Village came into existence in 1871 because of a new railroad line that ended at the head of Keweenaw Bay. In the early 1870's, L'Anse was a booming town and was becoming a trading center of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Businesses were moving in, new buildings were being constructed, an iron ore dock was built and the price of land skyrocketed. People talked about this new center surpassing even Marquette and Escanaba, Michigan. It is a great area, with a cultural mingling of people of many nationalities who were drawn to the area's mining, lumbering, and agricultural opportunities. Today the village is the county government seat and business center for most of the surrounding area with fine shopping facilities, churches of many faiths, a modern hospital and a variety of other services... Tourism Is Key in this area. In town there is the Village Park where there is a swimming beach, playground and pavilion (where weekly summer concerts are held), and just down the beach is a great deep water Marina for access to, and boat slip rentals on, Lake Superior. A beach volleyball court there is a popular attraction. A nine hole golf course, a gambling casino, several waterfalls, camp sites, a X-Country ski trail, the Bishop Baraga Shrine, and Mount Arvon, Michigan's highest point for trekking, are just a short drive from this property. There is something to do here year-round - A groomed L'Anse to Big Bay Snowmobile Trail is just a few miles from this property, and Ice Fishing on the "Big Lake" is found just past the river's mouth. Surrounded by Lake Superior, dozens of Inland lakes, streams, and wilderness tracts, the area is also known for great camping and hunting. The Falls River has four main waterfalls: the Lower Falls just west of the Village, the Middle Falls, a half mile upstream (follow the path upstream that runs alongside a high bluff), the Un-Named Falls by the US-41 bridge, and the Power House Falls (about 1.5 miles south of the Village.) The lot is located near this last falls and you can catch brook and rainbow trout from your beautiful cascading frontage! A driveway and building site is in place, and water, sewer, and electricity are available at the road side. Contact us today for a private tour of this beautiful property! MLS# 1092021
