Is Rebuilding on Your Current Lot Possible for You?

How to Finance a Rebuild Project

Located on the beautiful south shore of Lake Superior, Marquette is the most populated city of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. A major port on Lake Superior, primarily for shipping iron ore, Marquette is also the home of Northern Michigan University.  Make the most of every season in Marquette County by kayaking, biking, paddle boarding, exploring waterfalls and so much more. Extensive trails, amazing hikes and magnificent views offer everyone the chance to experience the beautiful spring and summer seasons unique to the U.P. 

Winter brings an abundance of activities to the outdoors, thanks to miles of snowmobiling, skiing and hiking trails.  Marquette has great opportunities for competitive outdoor activities, including the UP 200 Dogsled Race, Ore to Shore Bike Race and the Noquemanon Ski Race.  History buffs will enjoy visiting the Landmark Inn Historic Hotel and the Marquette County Historical Museum. Activities for all ages, Marquette offers an unbeatable quality of living.
