Marquette County is home to Northern Michigan University, a regional health care industry, and numerous manufacturers. Over 75 miles of Lake Superior shoreline and the Huron Mountains add scenic beauty to the county. Mining and lumbering first drew settlers to Marquette. Two iron mines still operate in the county, employing over 1,300 and the wood products industry also remains a significant employer in the area. The retail and service sectors employ thousands of additional people. The City of Marquette is the largest city in the Upper Peninsula. Highway, rail, air, and waterborne transportation connect Marquette County to the rest of the Midwest and to national and international markets. The conversion of K. I. Sawyer Air Force Base provides extensive industrial capacity in Marquette County, adding several hundred thousand square feet of industrial buildings and about 1,000 acres to the county's network of industrial sites.
