Station: Wetmore, MI

Wetmore was an old Indian settlement called Floeter. A post office was opened in 1883 and for a short time it was named Munising (the real Munising was then known as "Old Munising").  Like other towns in the area, loggers plied their trade in the forests and charcoal kilns were built. The town was named Wetmore, after one of its loggers, in 1894.
