Price Reduced! Upper Michigan Waterfront Home for Sale Where US-41 Ends! This beautiful waterfront home is located within the Norland Copper Harbor Sun and Beach Club, in Grant Township at the tip of the Keweenaw Peninsula in Keweenaw County, the northernmost county in Michigan. The property offered for sale has 400-Feet of frontage on beautiful Lake Fanny Hooe near Copper Harbor. 70% of the shoreline of this lake is part of Fort Wilkins State Park, and less than a dozen homes can ever be built on the remaining shoreline lots. The lake view from the home will never change! This is a designated trout lake which is 230-Acres in size and has depths of up to 40-Feet. Fish species present include trout and walleyes. The lake was named for Lucy Frances Fitzhugh (Fannie) Hooe, the sister of Richardetta Hooe Ruggles, who was the wife of Maine native Lieutenant Daniel Ruggles, West Point graduate and Mexican War hero - who served at Fort Wilkins. The geological formations in this county are among the earth's oldest, and for thousands of years an ancient, unknown people mined the rich copper deposits here. The U.S. Government purchased the peninsula from the Chippewa (Ojibwa) in the Treaty of LaPointe in 1842. The government opened a Mineral Agency at Copper Harbor in 1843, and built Fort Wilkins the next year. By 1845 mining was in progress at Copper Harbor, Eagle River, and Eagle Harbor. By 1846 almost 1,000 mining permits had been issued. This early copper rush was over by 1847, and by the 1870s shipping "around the point" declined because of the opening of the Portage Lake Ship Canal further south between Houghton and Hancock. Today several of the former mining sites are popular tourist attractions. The property borders on US Highway 41, almost at its northern end. The southern end of this 2,000 mile highway is in Downtown Miami! A paved driveway slopes down into the property, goes to the garage, and then to the home. It is sheltered from Lake Superior winds and is complete with towering red and white pine. The forest floor has thimbleberries and blueberries to enjoy in July and August.
