There is evidence that Chippewa people have lived at the Grand Marais Harbor and the surrounding area since the 1500s. The treaty of 1854, also known as the Treaty of LaPointe, opened up the North Shore to white settlement. As part of the treaty the people living at Grand Marais and Chippewa City were deeded plots of land as part of the annuities package.
