A Quiet Place to Visit, Play, and Live.
Located in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, Mastodon Township can be found in the heart of beautiful Iron County. Mastodon was so named from the fact mastodon bones were discovered when sinking a mine shaft. Mastodon Township is located in Iron County, in the southwest portion of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. We are the third largest Township in the County, consisting of 83,789.80 acres. Within the Township is the Village of Alpha with a total land area of just under one square mile. The total population of Mastodon Township including Alpha is 668 residents. Our economy is mainly based on small businesses, logging and year round tourism. We have numerous lakes, large wooded areas and an abundance of wildlife including
deer, bear, wolves and water fowl. With 4 very distinct seasons, there are a number of activities available to attract tourism such as: fishing, swimming, camping, hunting, skiing and snowmobiling.  In 1885 the boundaries for Iron County and Mastodon Township were established. When searching the area for deposits of iron ore, some huge prehistoric animal bones were discovered and on this basis, Mastodon Township received it's name. By 1893, the Delphic Mine had shipped some 33,770 tons of ore and by 1894, the Mastodon Mine had shipped 425,708 tons of iron ore. Mining became the major source of income for the area and as jobs became more available, the population continued to grow. In 1914, the Village of Alpha became incorporated and was a thriving community until the last mine closed in 1958.
