Au Train, Michigan

Au Train is an unincorporated community located in Au Train Township of Alger County. It is in the heart of the Hiawatha National Forest, easily accessible via highways M-28 or U.S. 2. yet only 12 miles west of Munising and within a mile of Lake Superior.It is in the north of the western section of the Hiawatha National Forest. The community sits at the foot of the Au Train River, where it empties into the Au Train Bay of Lake Superior. Its name derived from the French word for "dragging," in reference to travelers being able to drag their canoes along both the river and shore. The area was a landmark for local Native Americans, as the river mouth was the end point of a portage trail between Lake Michigan and Lake Superior.   In 1861, the river became a logging run to Lake Superior, with major logging occurring well into the 1880s.  The village of Au Train was founded in 1881 when the Detroit, Mackinac and Marquette Railroad was building east from Marquette, and was chosen as the county seat in 1885 before being replaced by Munising. Two structures within the community are listed on the National Register of Historic Places - the Au Train River Bridge over old M-94, and the Paulson House.
