80+/- ACRE MICHIGAN WOODED RECREATIONAL PARCEL FOR SALE! This parcel is located in Charter Portage Township, in the central part of Houghton County, in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. It is located south of the Village of Painesdale, north-east of the former Globe Mine. This is an area that is steeped in Mining History! The Village of Painesdale was organized in 1899 by the Champion Copper Company, and was named for its president William A. Paine. In 1864, the Globe Mining Company organized to explore three, one mile square tracts of land. It was discovered that four main copper Lodes crossed their property. Thus, about two miles southwest of the Champion Mine, the Globe Mine was organized. The Mine was first worked in 1901, and the operation was small with only one shaft built there. The last company continued exploration until the outbreak of World War II, when all operations ceased. By 2018, all the remaining rock piles (where copper and datolite could be found) were removed from the site. Today the site is an open sandy field. You pass this Historic site, and then pass an access point to the Bill Nicholls Trail, then take easement roads to get to the 160 -Acre wooded parcel in the Summer time, and in the Winter you can use this same route to get there with your Tracked ATV or snowmobile.

ATV, Horseback riding, Mountain biking, Snowmobiling, Walking, and Cross Country skiing can be done on this trail.
