MICHIGAN WOODED 40+/- ACRE PARCEL FOR SALE!! This property is located about 4+ miles south of the unincorporated community of Pelkie, in the northwest part of Baraga County in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. This is an area full of History and Outdoor Opportunities! Pelkie, first known as King's Landing, was settled by French Canadians woodsmen in about 1885. Finns who settled there initially called the area, Kyro after the place they came from in Finland. The name then became Kuro after a railroad was built through the area. But because many Finns settled in the area, the Finnish name Pelki(nen) became the most favored name for the area. This “Forty” is made up of Deciduous Forest, which was harvested in the past few years. Another Harvest is expected to be able to be done in 10 to 15 years. The cut was nicely done, and this woodland wilderness attracts all kinds of animals and bird life. Black bear, Fisher, Fox, Mink, Moose, Ruffed grouse, Snowshoe hare, Whitetail deer, and Woodcock are common here. It is a short commute in either direction to Houghton, or to the L'Anse -Baraga Area. To the north in Houghton and Hancock, Michigan Tech University, Theatres, Shopping and Galleries are located. To the south-east in the Villages of Baraga and L'Anse are Lake Superior marinas, hotels, motels, a casino, restaurants, stores, service stations and a hospital. If you are seeking a wooded U.P. Get-A-Way, check this parcel out!
