Phoenix, Michigan

Phoenix is a town in the U.S. State of Michigan in Keweenaw County. Phoenix lies at the junction of M-26 and US 41.

Phoenix was the site of the first successful copper mines in the Keweenaw Peninsula in the 1840s, although the mining boom ended not long after it had begun, as more easily accessible copper was discovered near Copper Harbor.

Phoenix lies about two miles south of Eagle River, Michigan, which in on the shores of Lake Superior.

In Phoenix today, few buildings remain. The Phoenix Store is the only running business in Phoenix, selling soda, beer, snacks, candy, toiletries and historical books about the area. There are two bars about a mile southwest of Phoenix along US-41. The Bammert Blacksmith Shop and the Church of the Assumption are two buildings dating back to the 1800s and are run by the Keweenaw National Historical Park [http://hunts-upguide.com/phoenix.html] .
