MICHIGAN WOODED 40-ACRE PARCEL FOR SALE! This property is located in Sherman Township, in the Keweenaw County in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan – a Township along the Keweenaw Bay’s western shore - Near Lake Superior’s Hermit Bay. The property is located a few miles north of the once booming Historic Mining Village of Gay. This area was organized in 1898 when the Mohawk  Mining Company built a stamping mill on the nearby shore of Lake Superior. It was followed by the building of a second stamping mill built by the Wolverine Mining Company. A Smelter here heated ore to extract copper, which was then stamped into copper ingots. A post office opened in 1904, named for Joseph E. Gay, long associated with mining in the area. Three distinctive tourist Landmarks in the area are the Gay School House, The Mohawk Stamp Mill ruins, and the 256 foot-high Gay Smoke Stack – which is used as a navigational aid… and a fourth, the Popular Gay Bar which was once the home of the Stamping Mill Superintendent. It opened in the 1930’s after the mines, the mills and smelter closed and Prohibition was repealed. The parcel has a small tributary of the Tobacco River flowing through its western side. The Tobacco River is 14 miles long. It rises at the outlet of Thayer Lake and flows east, then south to Lake Superior, which it joins near the Village of Gay. The River is a stocked Brook Trout Stream. Lake Superior is the largest fresh water lake in the world! It offers some excellent fishing for black crappie, jumbo perch, northern pike, rock bass, smallmouth bass, tiger muskie and walleye and it offers good Coho salmon and Rainbow trout catches. About 31 Acres of the property consists of Woody Wetlands – Woody Wetlands usually have trees such as tamarack, cedar, or balsam fir; a hardwood swamp usually has trees such as red maple, black ash, American elm, or balsam poplar; and shrub swamps usually have shrubs such as tag alder, willows, or red osier dogwood
