Eagle Harbor, Michigan

This small village in the Keweenaw Peninsula is nestled around the harbor and faces north overlooking Lake Superior. Eagle Harbor is now a quaint harbor town but was a boom town in the early history of the Upper Peninsula. The red brick Eagle Harbor Lighthouse sits on the rocky entrance to the harbor and is a working lighthouse as it still guides mariners across the northern edge of the Keweenaw Peninsula. Scuba divers will find many wrecks just off shore in the Keweenaw Underwater Preserve. Relax in Eagle Harbor and watch the "lakers" (Great Lakes freighters) and "salties" (ocean going foreign ships) as they pass by upbound to Duluth or Canadian ports, or downbound to Sault Sainte Marie and the other Great Lakes.  Eagle Harbor was founded in 1845 and named after the Eagle Harbor Mining Company which used this beautiful natural harbor for their base of supply.  Edward Taylor, the first settler, built a log warehouse here in 1844.  The Eagle Harbor Mining Company located here in 1845.  The village was platted by Mr. Slaughter. It was in Houghton County until Keweenaw County was organized in 1861. .
