Introduction to Menominee, Michigan
Located in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, the Menominee Native Americans originally inhabited the area now known as Menominee. The city was named after the Menominee tribe, which now has reservations along Wolf River in Wisconsin. An electric car, called the Dudly Bug, was manufactured here. Marshall Burns Lloyd invented an automated process for making man-made wicker in Menominee in 1917.
