Munising the county seat for Alger County is located on M-28. Population:  3,083. It is the western gateway to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore.  Grand Island is located directly north of town.  The large number of waterfalls in and around Munising make it a popular tourist destination. The town on the east shore of Munising Bay began in 1850 when the Munising Iron Company bought the land and platted the village, known as Old Munising and later as East Munising. William A. Cox became the first postmaster of Munising on December 22, 1858. The office was closed on April 10, 1873, as the Munising Iron Company failed and the office was alternately opened and closed as other iron firms continued the enterprise. In 1894, Timothy Nester and his associates began building the present city at the foot of the harbor where it was platted in 1895. Arthur S. Nester became the postmaster of its permanent post office on January 4, 1895.  Incorporated as a village in 1897 and as a city in 1915. The county seat since 1902.  It was in Schoolcraft County until Alger was organized in 1885. Munising, a change from Minissing, was Indian for island in a lake, or near the island, and was so called after Grand Island opposite.
