MICHIGAN 34.45-ACRE ONTONAGON COUNTY WOODED PARCEL FOR SALE!! - This property is located 9 miles north of historic Bruce Crossing, in Stannard Township, in Ontonagon County in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. In 1845 an overland mail route was established from Fort Howard in Green Bay, Wisconsin through Bruce Crossing, to Fort Williams at Copper Harbor. It became a nationally designated wagon route (known as the Military Road). Road work began in 1863, and a small relay station built in 1868 became the birth of Bruce Crossing. Logging companies and camps followed construction of the road. In the 1880s The Diamond Match Company obtained timber rights in the region and built some of the earliest camps. Railroads reached the area by the late 1880s. Soon sawmills along the nearby river banks, the Donald Bruce hotel, store, and saloon created the community which was officially named Bruces Crossing after the first postmaster, when its post office opened in 1888. It was shortened to Bruce Crossing in 1891. Farming and Logging has coexisted in the area - Men working in the logging camps harvested timber during the winter months, and returned to their farms in the summer.
