THE BAY BEYOND BELIEF

Baraga County’s location affords many the opportunity to enjoy the pristine waters of Lake Superior, while being in the protected shores of Keweenaw Bay. This beautiful bay is rich with history, beginning in the early 1800s as a¬† major port of trade for fur pelts, fish and timber. The natural resources that surrounded Keweenaw Bay allowed the region to experience¬† early sources of economic wealth and prosperity. As time went on the bay continued to be the major driving force behind the growth and development of what we now call Baraga County. Today you will see fisherman and pleasure boaters sharing those clear Superior waters and reaping the benefits that all those who have lived along Keweenaw Bays shores have experienced.
