1. St. Ignace Marker
Inscription. Pere Marquette established in 1671 the Mission of St. Ignace. French troops soon after built Fort Buade. The state’s second oldest white village guarded the Straits while serving as the most important French fur post in the northwest. By 1706 both the fort and mission were abandoned. Only in the 19th century did lumbering and fishing revive the town.
