Michigan

Isle Royale's physical isolation and primitive wilderness has challenged human use for centuries; ironically, today it has become the Island's main attraction. Accessible only by boat or seaplane, visitors come to experience this island park by hiking its trails, paddling its inland waterways, exploring its rugged coast, or venturing into the depth of its shipwrecks.

Michigan

From 7,000 years ago through the 1900s, people mined Keweenaw copper. Native peoples made copper into tools and trade items. Investors and immigrants arrived in the 1800s during a great mineral rush, developing thriving industries and cosmopolitan communities. Though the mines have since closed, their mark is still visible on the land and people.
