MICHIGAN HISTORIC McCLURE DAM CARE TAKERS CABIN FOR SALE! This Cabin property is located on 202-Feet of The McClure Basin - which is located on the Dead River, in east-central Marquette County, in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. To the Native Americans, the mists arising from the Dead River conveyed the souls of the departed into the unknown, and they named the stream Gi-nibo-manitou-sibi, of Djibis-manitou-sibi meaning The River of The Spirits of The Dead. The French retained the name in Riviere de Morte, translated by Americans into Dead River. The 43.2 mile long river flows southeasterly from western Marquette County to its mouth on Lake Superior. The entire river is a coldwater fishery. The McClure Basin is formed by the McClure dam, a hydroelectric dam which was built above a waterfall located at its eastern end. This basin is the middle of three basins, and is the most dramatic. There are tall rugged hills that surround this artficial lake, and there are rock outcroppings that shoot up from the water! Part of the waterfall is built into the base of the dam. Water sometimes flows over the cement dam, and there is a stream of water that pours out of a pipe over jagged rocks. Rocky bedrock is found at the bottom of the dam, and water flows from there through chutes to the drop another 75 yards, over the rest of the falls. Located dowmstream are the Upper Dead River Falls and Trestle Falls. You will be able to fish for Walleyes, Smallmouth bass, and Pike right from your property, and a peek at the photos will show you that wildlife abounds! Besides the waterfront, the property is surrounded by woodland, and Moose, Whitetail deer, and every kind of game and non game animals and birds visit the property in every season. The quaint 1008 Square Foot Bungalow Style cabin was built in 1920s for the Care Takers of the Dam. It features a low pitched four sided hip roof, and a spacious front porch with large columns beneath an extension of the main roof, which typified the styles of the American Arts and Crafts movement popular at that time. Bungalow design in America was greatly influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement among people who had grown tired of the mass-produced and overly ornate architecture of the Victorian Era. They offered low cost, simple living quarters with an artistic touch. The one-story floor plan has minimal space wasted on hallways. A 13x17 Living Area, leads to the 6x28 Open Porch that faces the water. There is a 13x14 Kitchen with Eat-In Dining Area with access to a back entrance, Three bed rooms, and a Full bath. Nice large double-hung windows with wide wood trim and original hardwood floors provide charm to the home. Updates have been started. A 12x28 Half Basement is found below the first floor living area. Additional remodeling and restoration could make this a great smaller scale home, or a great weekend get a way cabin! The setting is secluded, off of a dead end road, and there's plenty...
