By Paul Walker , Daily Press

MANISTIQUE - Manistique (Epsport) was founded in 1860, while development of the area did not begin until the latter part of the 1800s. With the eastern United States timber gone, Manistique was discovered and shortly afterwards the timber boom began. Manistique became a boomtown, and during its peak, local population grew to a sweeping 10,000. During this era Manistique comprised mostly of sawmills, while spurring other industries and supporting merchants and services.
