Fishtown of Leland Michigan
Fishtown in Leland Michigan. Northern Michigan's commercial fishing heritage remains alive today in Leland's Fishtown. You can walk along the docks, amongst the weathered fishing shanties, smokehouses, racks of drying fishing nets, and fish tugs on the Leland River, and you can imagine what it would have been like in the early 1900s to live and work in this small fishing village, nestled along the shore of Lake Michigan. Fishtown still operates as one of the only working commercial fishing villages in the state of Michigan.
