Once a bustling industrial community, Fayette manufactured charcoal pig iron between 1867 and 1891. It offers visitors the unmatched serenity of a Lake Michigan harbor, white dolomite bluffs and verdant forests. This well-preserved museum village recalls a time when it was a noisy, bustling mining town with an immigrant population that shared daily hardships, joys and sorrows.
