Lost Peninsula

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Lost Peninsula is a small exclave of the U.S. state of Michigan; it is the southeasternmost corner of the state

The Lost Peninsula, originally connected to Michigan Territory through what is now Lucas County, Ohio, became separated after the 1835 Toledo War. The new state line was established at approximately the 41°44’ north latitude line just north of the mouth of the Maumee River. This gave the river and the city of Toledo to the state of Ohio, but it also created an unintended consequence for a specific area of Michigan. The state line also cut through the smaller Ottawa River and cut off a small section of Monroe County, creating an exclave known as the “Lost Peninsula” (41°44′08.3″N 83°27′35.6″W / 41.735639°N 83.459889°W / 41.735639; -83.459889).[1]

The approximately 140 Michigan residents that live on the small peninsula must travel south into Lucas County, Ohio on a 10-minute drive before going north to get back to the rest of Michigan. The Lost Peninsula is administered by Erie Township. Public school students must travel through Ohio to attend schools in Michigan.[2]

The peninsula, about 250 acres in area, contains a marina and two restaurants as well as homes.[3][4]

Two people were killed on the peninsula during the 1965 Palm Sunday tornado outbreak.[5]

In 2005, a proposal to build 300 luxury condominium units on the peninsula was ultimately withdrawn over water supply issues.[6][7]
