Mohawk is located on US-41 in Keweenaw County.  Name after the site of the Mohawk Mine of the Wolverine - Mohawk Mining Company.  In 1896, Ernest Koch, a lumberman, chanced to find some native copper here.  Exploration by Joseph E. Gay proved the value of the find, and in 1898, the Mohawk Mining Company was formed and began operation.  The village developed with the mine and was named from it. Mohawk was the name of an Indian Tribe. Mohawkite occurs in only one area in the world--the Mohawk-Ameek area.
