Nahma is a historic lumbering/saw mill community that was
established as early as 1856. In the
Heydays of the Big Bay de Noquet Company (lumber) the company employed over
1200 workers. After the timber resource
was exhausted the entire town of Nahma was put up for sale in 1951. This was featured in Life Magazine. Nahma is located in Nahma Township. Approximately 68 percent (75,000 acres) of
Nahma Township’s land area is federally owned (Hiawatha National Forest). Water
resources abound as numerous streams, inland lakes and approximately 14 miles
of Big Bay de Noc shoreline exist within the Township. These natural features, and the recreational
opportunities that go along with them, attract both tourists and seasonal
residents. Nahma’s northern township border is just 19 miles from Lake Superior.
