HISTORY OF MIKADO TOWNSHIP

Daniel D. Bruce was born at King Center, Ontario, Canada, 1850, the son of Scottish emigrants. In 1863, the grandfather moved his family to Huron County, Michigan. He applied for, and was granted, citizenship and homestead rights in 1868. Two years later, he left Sand Beach (now Harbor Beach) by boat and landed at Greenbush in 1870.

In the early 1880s, the railroad began its move northward. The Detroit, Bay City and Alpena Railroad train traveled from Alger through Tawas, Oscoda, Mikado and Lincoln, continuing north six miles, then turning northeast to Black River where the Alger Smith Lumber Company had its headquarters.
