Migrating from Europe to escape famine, disease, war and oppressive governments during the late 1800s and early 1900s, a melting pot of settlers made its way westward by, in many cases, sailing the Great Lakes waterway. Immigrants staked claims along the peninsula and formed hamlets around familial, ethnic and religious relationships to serve their needs in a place that lacked inland transportation.
