Explore Houghton, Michigan

The gateway to the Keweenaw Peninsula, “the U.P. of the U.P. of Michigan,” Houghton, Michigan’s story is one of adaptability. The city originally rose and fell with the mining industry. With abundant copper deposits and a natural shipping port, it was a thriving business center by 1865. Yet by 1970 the town suffered from the decline of mining. Its population was less than half what it had been in 1920. Recognizing the need for change, city leaders saw that Houghton was poised to become a major outdoor recreation center. Woodlands, lake country, striking terrain and proximity to Lake Superior and Isle Royale National Park (reachable only by boat or plane) make it attractive to outdoor enthusiasts of all kinds. Today, it’s a launching point for park visitors and a revitalized city worth a visit.
