Meet the People of Marquette
Because places need people to create culture and community...
The purpose of our People of Marquette series is an ode to those who have paved a path of perseverance in the rural Upper Peninsula. One that has made it possible for our bustling, innovative community to flourish into what we see today.
Places need people to create both culture and community. To mold landscape into destinations where we build our businesses and our homes. We can’t wait for you to meet the People of Marquette and hope you’ll consider joining us.
