COPPER HARBOR, Mich. (AP) - An Upper Peninsula lodge built with federal aid during the Great Depression is up for sale.
The Keweenaw County Board has received a $1.5 million offer for Keweenaw Mountain Lodge, which includes land, rooms, a nine-hole golf course and a string of cabins.
James Henderson, president of Adoba Hotels, says he "loves historical properties."
Keweenaw County Board chairman Don Piche says four potential buyers have visited the site or requested a tour. The county can't afford to subsidize the property.
The Daily Mining Gazette reports that Keweenaw County will eventually select a purchaser for negotiations. The lodge was built in the 1930s as a way to stimulate the local economy during the Depression.
