On Thunder Bay

Alpena's industrial past makes it an interesting example of northern Michigan development. Did you know that the world's largest limestone mine in only "a stone's throw" from here? The Thunder Bay river doesn't bustle as it must have 80 years ago, but it helps make Alpena an important shipping and recreation center.

Proud mansions from the early 20th century line Alpena's boulevards.
