MICHIGAN 120+/- ACRE RECREATIONAL CABIN PROPERTY FOR SALE! This property is located in the most southern part of Marquette County, in Wells Township, in Central Upper Peninsula! The property is about 2 miles south of the Historic Unincorporated Village of Watson, which was once a thriving center for loggers and lumberjacks. The town was named after Watson Stephenson, a lumber man, sawmill owner, politician, and founder of the Lake Superior and Lake Superior Railroad. Logging camps began operating just northeast of Watson, in the mid-1850s. At first oxen were used to deliver supplies to the camp, and timber was floated down the nearby Ford River to the Escanaba River, or was hauled by horse-drawn sleds in the Wintertime. Finally, in 1899 the Escanaba and Lake Superior Railroad was built to the area, and Watson became a station on the line. After the end of the logging hay days, people in the area made their livelihoods mostly by small scale farming, gardening, raising animals, and cutting timber. Today logging and agriculture jobs are still a major contributor to the local economy. The southern border of the property is adjacent to thousands of acres of Corporate CFA lands, and is a quarter mile away from hundreds of acres of State Land for walk-in access to hunting, trapping and fishing in Season. The Property is in Michigan Deer Management Unit 255, and is known for some of the best Whitetail deer hunting in the county. Hunters will also find Black bear, Grouse, Hare, Woodcock, and Turkey available here. Up the nearby Ross Grade to Kates Grade is access to Trail No. 32, an east-west Multi-Use Motorized State Trail. Here participants find Foot, Dirt Bike, ATV, and Horseback available in the Summer, and in the Winter the trails are used by Skiers and Snowmobilers. This same trek northward will take you to Forsyth Township's intensively managed walk-in accessible ruffed grouse hunting area...Ask For Additional Remarks That Are Found In Associated Documents
