History:  

The city of Grand Marais in Rosebush Township (T. 61N, R. 1E), sections 20 and 21, was incorporated on April 21, 1903, and separated from the township on March 27, 1906. Ed. W. Wakelin purchased the first piece of property on the bay in 1872; by the end of 1873, Wakelin, Henry Mayhew and Samuel F. Howenstein owned all the land comprising the original village and lands along West and East Bays and retained control until the early 1900s in spite of buildings, docks, warehouses, railroad rights-of-way, and ore docks. The Mayhew brothers, Henry and Thomas W., had a store on the point made by the bays that served as a trading post; Joseph E. Mayhew was the first lighthouse keeper in 1886. The post office was established in Superior County, Wis., 1856-57, changed its name to Hiawatha, 1857-58, and became Grand Marais in 1873.

Radio Waves Music Festival
Second weekend in September

Area residents and visitors of all ages came together for two days of music in September at Sweetheart’s Bluff in Grand Marais as part of the fourth annual Radio Waves Music Festival, sponsored by WTIP North Shore Community Radio and the North Shore Music Association. The line-up offered a variety of genres from rock to folk, jazz, swing and country. More than 1,000 people came through the gates over the two days. The modest $5 admission per adult helped offset the cost of staging the festival; the rest was covered by a grant from the Arrowhead Regional Arts Council. “It’s important to note that Radio Waves isn’t a fundraiser for us,” says Deb Benedict, WTIP’s executive director. The festival is designed as a community event, bringing people together to enjoy the extraordinary talent and diversity of the area.
