Ishpeming, Michigan

Ishpeming is a city in Marquette County in the Upper Peninsula part of the U.S. state of Michigan. The population was 6,686 at the 2000 census.

Ishpeming Township is located to the northwest of the city. Ishpeming is considered the birth place of organized skiing in the United States and is the home to the National Ski Hall of Fame. The name Ishpeming comes from a Native American term that means "on the summit" or "Higher elevation." Ishpeming is Ojibwe for "Heaven".
