Property Description

Michigan 80+/- Acre Farm Homestead For Sale. This property is located near Rouseau - where camping and outdoor recreation, over the years, has provided relaxation for many. This Village is located in north-eastern Ontonagon County, just a short drive south-east of Mass City. The location was a station on the Chicago, Minneapolis and Saint Paul Railroad, and a post office, and both were originally named Rubicon. The clerk of its township of Bohemia, Bert L. Hubbell, became its first postmaster in 1892. It was renamed in the 1920S for Edward Rousseau, for his 26 years 0f service as supervisor of the Township. Ontonagon County is named after the Ontonagon River and said to be derived from a Native American word Nondon-organ, meaning "hunting river". The name first appeared as a name for a river called Nantounagon on a 1670 French map. Alternatively, it is said to be derived from the Ojibwa onagon, which means "dish" or "bowl". Just two miles away is a popular entrance to the Ottawa National Forest. This forest covers 988,000 acres and provides public access to lakes, rivers and streams, waterfalls, wetlands, old growth forests, as well as wildlife - whitetail deer, bear, and birds are abundant. A short distance away is the East Branch of the Ontonagon River, for some excellent trout fishing. This river is fast and runs through some very wild country. The banks are high and the river passes many high hills. Trail No. 12, a main East-West Multi-Use State Trail passes right by the property for miles and miles of trails for motorized "outdoor enthusiasts". If you love mining history, Mass City/Greenland and the fabulous Adventure Copper Mine is in this vicinity and now offers underground tours. Old copper mine workings dot the Mass bluffs. Most are accessible only by poor roads. Rockland Mines and Townsite mines are a short drive away, and two of the richest copper mines in the county, the National and the Minnesota are also located near by. Not much remains of either except for their rock piles, but the persistent and perceptive explorer can find locations that whisper the work of our ancestors. The back of the property is a grassy field that stretches off into the distance - The vista across these farmlands is beautiful. A neighbor has been making hay off this parcel for several years. A small seasonal creek that runs near one border of the property attracts wildlife. This Home and Grounds will need "Clean Up" - But the property might be perfect for a small group of hunters. Call to arrange your private tour today. MLS# 1116840
