Where You Are Always Home

Once a major mining town hub, Iron River is using its natural resources and breathtaking environment to reinvent itself and create a rewarding quality of life for its citizens.

Iron River has strong businesses, community anchors, beautiful historic buildings, and a growing medical community. The Iron River (which is a Blue Ribbon Trout Stream and flows through the City), the Apple Blossom Hiking Trail, the Upper Peninsula Championship Rodeo, and the Iron County Historical Museum are just a few of the reasons to visit.

The City enjoys a significant and growing influx of year round tourists who come to the area to ski, snowmobile, hunt, fish, hike, bike, and chiefly enjoy the natural beauty.

Iron River is a very welcoming community and invites you to visit us soon and even consider us for your future new home!
