This home is located in the Village of Sidnaw, in Duncan Township, in the south-eastern part of Houghton County in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan - an area that contains thousands of acres of Ottawa National Forest Land.  An area rich in history, the Village of Sidnaw was founded in the late 1880s during the logging hay days. The name of the community, "Sidnaw" is a Native American word for a small hill by a creek. Yet today, a section of the Village is called "Addition to Hill Creek", and the property offered for sale is in this subdivision. Lumbermen, Gunlak Bergland and Thomas Nestor subdivided the Village, and harvested the high quality white pine in the area. The D.S.S. and A. Railroad provided transportation of their top-quality lumber to faraway places, and the Village boomed. It was the center of Henry Ford's hardwood empire. A Civilian Conservation Corps camp built in the area, was later used as a work camp for German POWs during World War II. The well known Main East-West Snowmobile Trail 8/15 goes right through Sidnaw, then heads northward toward the Ottawa National Forest. The Sno-Valley Riders is an active club.  The Ottawa National Forest - covers 993,010 acres of land in the Upper Peninsula!
