In 1845, Adam Stronach built a lumber mill on the channel between Lake Michigan and Portage Lake. Onekama (the Indian name for Portage) was settled and soon had two major railroads; the Manistee and the Northwestern. Onekama reached village status in 1891 and was considered a favorite spot for tourism in the early 1900s. Today, the village consists of many prospering businesses including restaurants, lodging facilities, retail stores and a marina. The area is a favorite recreational location for many travelers. The Historic Portage Point Inn along with other Victorian style cottages offer a glimpse back in time when tourism first started and this great resort town was developed.
