Negaunee is located on US-41 in Marquette County. The village was incorporated in 1865, and became a city in 1873. Negaunee is home to the Michigan Iron Industry Museum. Population: 4,741. It was first settled by the Jackson Iron Company (see Jackson, Michigan) in 1846. The Pioneer Furnace opened here in 1857. The settlement was given a post office as Neganne on January 21, 1858, with Edward C. Hungerford as its first postmaster; the spelling was changed to Negaunee on February 11, 1858. In 1865, J.P. Pendill and the Pioneer Company had two plats made, that of the former called Iron and of the latter Negaunee; on these two plats, together with some of the Jackson land, the present city stands. Incorporated as a village in 1865 and as a city in 1873. Negaunee is Chippewa for "pioneer". Informational excerpts from Michigan Place Names, by Walter Romig, L.H.D.

ATTENTION GEM & MINERAL HUNTERS.  Between Negaunee and Ishpeming is a knoll known as Jasper Hill. It is made up of Jaspilite - brilliant light red bands of jasper alternating with bands of hard, bluish-black, specular hematite. The Jaspilite is folded, bent and twisted in a most fanciful fashion. When polished, specimens assume a very beautiful polish.
