Population 900. The farthest-north village of the lower peninsula looks out over the straits of Mackinaw to the beautiful Mackinac Island and the shores of the upper peninsula less than 10 miles away. As the northern terminus of the Mackinaw division of the MCRR and the G R & I Ry, it is the gateway through which the rail traffic to the upper peninsula flows. The trains of the D S S & A Ry reach Mackinaw City on the powerful car ferries Chief Wawatam and Ste Marie the year around. The latter boat was selected by the Russian Government as a model for an ice crusher in their own waters. Water communication is maintained daily during the season with Mackinac Island and the other popular summer resorts in the immediate vicinity. There are many points of historic interest at Mackinaw City. It was here that the first fort and block house was erected and upon that site of the massacre of June 4th, 1763, has been located the Michillimackinac state park of 22 acres. In addition the village boasts of over four miles of cement walks; a boulevard about two miles in length along the shores of the straits; a city hall, fire station and council chamber with the second floor equipped as an opera house with a seating capacity of 500; for fire protection a fire engine, hook and ladder truck and 1,500 feet of hose and a volunteer fire department of 40 members. Methodist Episcopal, Presbyterian and Roman Catholic churches have suitable edifices and a public school of ten grades with 225 pupils is maintained. It is lighted by electricity and has telephone and telegraph communication with all points. The postoffice name is Mackinaw though the incorporated name of the village in Mackinaw City.

Population 1,000. It was incorporated as a village in April, 1903, and is located on the Mackinaw Divsion of the M. C. R. R. at the forks of the Sturgeon river, a popular trout stream in Nunda township, 28 miles south of Cheboygan, the county seat. Wolverine occupies an advantageous proximity to the timber which supplies the raw material for the manufacturers. Has a planing mill, a flour mill and creamery, giving steady employment to a number of the citizens. Also an electric lighting plant which gives the best service of any small town in the state. The surrounding country has shown an exceptional adaptation to successful fruit growing and the apples produced are of the finest quality, both in size and flavor. A graded school and Congregational, Methodist Episcopal and Roman Catholic churches care for the intellectual and spiritual needs of the community. Wolverine boasts of an excellent cornet band of 16 pieces and has a well equipped fire department. One bank with ample capital serves the financial needs of the village and the surrounding country. A live weekly newspaper, the Wolverine Courier, chronicles the events of this section and is devoted to the advancement of its interests. Wolverine is the supply-center for the southern part of the county and the stocks of goods carried by its merchants would be a credit to a village of twice its size. Telephone exchange with 115 subscribers. C. M. Fails, postmaster.
