Phoenix, Michigan

Phoenix is located on Highway 41 at the junction of M-26 to Eagle River.  A thriving mining town of around 500 to 1000 people in 1872, there are only a few old buildings and the Phoenix Church remaining at the site of the old mine today. The Lake Superior Copper Association was begun 1842 by Charles H. Gratiot and Jacob Bernard (another member was David Henshaw who became secretary of the navy under President John Tyler).  They chose sites along Lake Superior in 1843 and organized Boston in 1844.  Since they had no capital, they sold some of their 15 leases to Copper Falls, the North Western, and the Central Mine.  But in 1849, they went broke, and the Phoenix Copper Company was organized in Boston to buy their remaining properties. This village developed around their Phoenix Mine, and was given a post office named Phoenix on September 1, 1865, with Joseph Paul as its first postmaster.  Informational excerpts from Michigan Place Names, by Walter Romig, L.H.D.
