Notes

  • Biographical / Historical

    Ely Township is located in the western part of Marquette County. It was established in the late 1800s and had several working mines in its boundaries, along with a blast furnace. The mines have all closed and the township is mainly rural. The records cover the Ely School District, which was an independent school district until the mid 1970s when it became part of the NICE school district, and the township itself, including board meeting minutes and more.
