7672 N Peter White Rd
Deerton, MI 49822

This waterfront, recreation and timber investment property is 252 acres in size. Additionally, it has an abundance of history. It is located 18 miles southeast of Marquette, Michigan in northwestern Alger County. The property has approximately 1,450 feet of frontage on Whitefish Lake and 1,500 feet of frontage on the Laughing Whitefish River. The property has an impressive forest cover with significant timber value. Large sugar maple and hemlock trees are common across the landscape and are one of the defining features of the property. There is a presence of veneer sawtimber and the possibility of specialty products such as birds-eye maple and curly maple within the northern hardwood forest cover types. This property has been in the current owner's family for three generations and includes quite a bit of history. The Nature Conservancy owns much of the surrounding land which was donated by the subject's landowners. According to the Nature Conservancy's website: The land has been revered since this family's earliest relatives first set foot here. The family goes back as far as Peter White, one of the earliest founders of the City of Marquette. White first acquired the property and built his wilderness camp in the early 1800's. Later, White's son-in-law George Shiras III successfully tested his new invented method of photographing wildlife at night here. Laughing Whitefish Lake became famous when the pictures won prizes at the 1900 World Exposition in Paris and the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition in St. Louis. In 1906, National Geographic Magazine devoted an issue to his photos. Read More
