E-M:/ U.P. land for sale

Enviro-Mich message from John Rebers <jrebers@nmu.edu>

According to an article in the Mining Journal (Marquette) on Wednesday,
July 24, "the trust acreage is located in these U.P. counties: Alger,
144,572; Baraga, 29,570; Chippewa, 14,714; Delta, 22; Gogebic, 13,120;
Houghton, 1,930; Luce, 91,871; Marquette, 38,578; Ontonagon, 25,801; and
Schoolcraft, 29,025."

For more information, go to
Only way I know of to find detailed information about holdings in a
specific county would be with a plat map. I think the holdings are listed
as "Shelter Bay forestry", but don't have a plat map with me to check.
