Lac La Belle was once the site of a stamping plant for the Delaware and Mendota copper mines back in it’s hay day but now resembles a small resort area with some big attractions. Lac La Belle has a history of several mining companies attempting to mine copper from the area, the also had the only steam powered stamp mill in the area. In an attempt to make the mine flourish, they increased the size of the canal connecting the Lac La Belle to Lake Superior, making it easier for the Ore Boats to traverse it. However, all attempts failed and in 1867 the mine closed for good. Now it is a beautiful resort town.
You’ll find Mount Bohemia located here as well as small resorts and vacation rentals, restaurants and so much more!
