Business Incl. Building - L'Anse, MI
MICHIGAN BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY! This Commercial Property is located on US-41, a high traffic, very visible corner location! It is on the main highway thoroughfare that leads into the Keweenaw Peninsula, and into the Village of L'Anse which is in north-central Baraga County in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. This Village is located 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 areas 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...
