The City of Gwinn, located in Forsyth Township, is perfectly centered in the middle of the Upper Peninsula. Aside from Gwinn, Little Lake and Swayer are also towns located within Forsyth Township. Just twenty miles outside of Marquette, great nature, including dozens of lakes (about 50), awaits you! Rivers and parks also scatter the area and offer a well-rounded experience for nature enthusiasts.
Nearby in Sawyer, stop in and visit the K.I. Swayer Heritage Air Museum, a museum commemorating the once active K.I. Swayer Air Force Base. A portion of the air force base has remained in use by the Swayer International Airport, the most commonly used airport in the Upper Peninsula. The addition of the K.I. Swayer Air Force Base to our region has resulted in a history rich in story, innovation and unity. Economically, many jobs were created. Involvement in the United States Armed Forces not only added to the culture and resources of our region, but also enabled the opportunity to service our great nation.
