20-acre wooded michigan residential-recreational parcel located in a historic area just south of the village of l'anse. This parcel is located on power dam road, in l'anse township, in the upper peninsula's baraga county. In 1908 the village of l??Anse constructed a dam and small hydroelectric plant on the falls river, at the site of what is now called ??Power house falls??, which functioned until 1966. These 15-foot high, 40-foot wide falls are the largest of the many falls on the falls river. These waterfalls are easy to visit - just drive past the property being offered for sale, take a turn to the right and follow the road for about a half mile. When it crosses the train tracks the road branches. Go straight ahead on the dirt road to a "y", take a right. There is a sign for the falls. Tucked behind the old power house, are the beautiful falls - where you will find twin sheets of water between the crumbling concrete and the forested banks. The power dam falls, and a number of small drops are above the power house falls, and along the two mile pathway before the river empties into lake superior are five more named falls and several other un-named falls. The property is located just a little over a mile south of l'anse village where there is access to lake superior's l'anse bay. Here good fishing is available throughout the season for lake trout, walleyes, pike, smallmouth bass, and perch. The bay also has a good number of coho and chinook salmon, brown trout, and steelhead - making this a popular fishing destination. This historic area is rich in native american, french explorer, fur trapper, and missionaries history. It was explored by french explorers, trappers, and missionaries in the 1600's and was settled in the early 1870's. A down-town marina and park provide a great place to launch your boat, canoe, tube or kayak, wade, and swim. The village offers shopping, schools, churches, and a good hospital, making this community a great place to live in! Waterfa
