History

South Range was platted in 1902 by the Wheal Kate Mining Company, which operated an unsuccessful copper mine nearby. In 1906 the community tried to incorporate as the town of "Stanton", but there was already a Stanton, Michigan, so they incorporated as "South Range", because it was at the south end of the Michigan copper range. Italians were the dominant ethnic group in early years. [Clarence J. Monette (1995) "Early South Range", Lake Linden, Mich.: Clarence Monette.]
