COPPER HARBOR, Mich. — 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.”

The lodge is in Copper Harbor, Michigan, at the northernmost point of the state. 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.
