Wetmore, Michigan

Wetmore is located at the junction of M-28 and FFH-13 in Alger County. This village began as a small, mostly Indian, settlement called Floeter, and was given a post office of that name on July 2, 1883, with Francois X. Brusette as its first postmaster.  It was renamed Munising (the present Munising was then known as Old Munising) on October 23, 1899.  A station on the Duluth, South Shore & Atlantic Railroad. William L. Wetmore had come here to cut off hardwood for charcoal about 1871, and he built kilns and a general store. When he retired about 1894, the village was renamed for him, and when its post office was restored on December 3, 1895, it too was renamed for him. It was in Schoolcraft County until Alger was organized on March 17, 1885. Informational excerpts from Michigan Place Names, by Walter Romig, L.H.D.
