Manistique, formerly Monistique, is the only incorporated city in and the county seat of Schoolcraft County of the U.S. state of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. As of the 2010 census, the city population was 3,097. The city lies on the north shore of Lake Michigan, at the southwest corner of Manistique Township, but is politically autonomous. Manistique was founded where the Manistique River flows into Lake Michigan, forming somewhat of a natural harbor, which has since been improved with breakwaters, dredging, and a lighthouse. The city takes its name from the Manistique River. The economy also depends heavily on tourism.HistoryOriginally named Eastport, Manistique replaced Onota as the county seat. Eppsport was the name of the post office, but was not used for the community. Manistique was incorporated as village in 1883 and a city in 1901 by the state legislature. With the river originally spelled Monistique, a spelling error in the city charter led to its current spelling.GeographyAccording to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 3.51sqmi, of which 3.19sqmi is land and 0.32sqmi is water.
