Station: Little Lake, MI
Little Lake in Marquette was settled about 1863 around a mill and general store of the Cheshire Iron Manufacturing Company. It was also a station and meeting point on the Chicago & Northwestern railroad originally called Cheshire Junction but changed in a short time. [MPN]
Little Lake was also the crossing of the LS&I line which ran from Munising to the mining region near Gwinn.
