View of Negaunee, Marquette County, M.I., 1871 / drawn & published by H. H. Bailey.

This bird’s-eye view print of Negaunee, Michigan was drawn and published by Howard Heston Bailey, C. H. Vogt Lith. in 1871. Negaunee was established in the upper peninsula in the 1840's when iron ore was discovered in the area. Iron was determined to be just below sod-level throughout the Marquette Range and mining began immediately as the iron and steel industry began to flourish in the Great Lakes region.

Railroad lines connected the mines with shipping docks were built out over Lake Superior at Marquette to transport the raw ore to other areas of the country. Railroad lines that directly transported ore to Chicago, Milwaukee, Toledo and other areas were added in the 1850's.

Negaunee prospered greatly because of the mining industry and the town was officially incorporated in 1865. Negaunee is now considered part of Marquette.

The illustration includes labeled roads, mines, buildings and railroad routes. Teal Lake is shown in the distance.
