Michigan Riverfront Property For Sale.. This 85 +/- Acre parcel has 1400+ Feet of beautiful Michigamme River frontage, and is located 2.5 Miles south of South Republic, in south western Marquette County, in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The village of Republic grew up around the Republic Mine which first operated from 1872 to 1926. The original town name was Iron City, which was changed to Republic by Mr. Ed Breitung, the founder or the mine, in 1880. He named it Republic for "the land of the free and the home of the brave". In the late 1950'S, open pit and crushing concentration facilities were established at the mine site. Approximately 1.5 million tons of concentrated iron ore pellets were shipped annually to our nation's steel mills.
