French Missionary Priest Father Jacques Marquette came to the Great Lakes in 1668 and started a mission that became the town of Sault Ste. Marie. In the Lower Peninsula, he erected a cross on a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan. The Native Americans referred to the area as “The Land Of The Cross” and it became what is now Cross Village. A white cross still stands there today overlooking Lake Michigan.
