The City of Crystal Falls, born of the early iron mining and timber explorations in the southwest of Michigan's Upper Peninsula, sprawls leisurely on hilly terrain extending east and west from the banks of the Paint River. It is a city that, in growing from its first settler's shacks to a picturesque residential community, went into partnership with nature in preserving a natural setting for itself. Most impressive is the Iron County Court House that graces the west end of Superior Avenue, the main business section of the City.
The City owns and operates its own hydro-electric plant which provides a portion of the electricity used by the residents, keeping electric rates significantly lower than most communities of today. The City has also operated it own cable TV system since 1958 with recent upgrades to allow expansion.
The Crystal View Municipal Golf Course overlooks the Paint River and offers a challenging 9 holes of play.
Runkle Lake Park, located on beautiful Runkle Lake, offers a sandy beach and playground, camping and picnic areas, good fishing, and lots of PEACE AND QUIET.
Evergreen Memorial Cemetery is a site of great pride in our community. The well kept grounds provide a beautiful and peaceful final resting place.
