    History

    Settled by the Chippewa Native American Tribe, this area has evidence of human presence dating back to 8,000 years ago. The Chippewa are the second largest First Nations group in the United States and are known for their robust cultural history and artifacts like scrolls containing information on history, songs, geometry, maps, and memories.

    European and Russian settlers came in the 1800s, brought the railroad, and built a sawmill, foreshadowing the continuing expansion into western territories.
