History

Fur trading and logging were intertwined with the beginning of the community back in the 18th and 19th centuries. Lac Vieux Desert which was inhabited by the Chippewa Indians was a crossroads for the European fur traders. Finnish loggers had a large impact on the towns heritage. Originally known as Hackley the township was renamed in 1912. G.L. Draper established his trading post near Lac Vieux Desert and was the first settler in 1852. Congress authorized the building of Military Road in 1863 from a fort in Green Bay to a Fort at the top of Keweenaw County Michigan which ran past Draper's business. In 1905 the village was developed on North Twin Lake and from 1906-1912 Phelps experienced it's biggest growth spurt when Finnish loggers and farmers moved to the area.
