The Michigan State Historic Preservation Office and the National Register Project Coordinator for the State Historic Preservation Office in Lansing announced that the entire Town of Gwinn, in Forsyth Township, in the Upper Peninsula (U.P.) has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Gwinn was build by the Cleveland-Cliffs Iron Company (CCI) in the early 1900’s as a planned industrial community. CCI President William F. Mather, who named the town after his mother, Elizabeth Lucy Gwinn, was the force behind building the town. He hired well-known Boston, Massachusetts, landscape designer, Warren H. Manning, to design the community. Gwinn is significant in America's industry history.
