|Founded in 1668, Sault Sainte Marie is the oldest city in Michigan and one of the oldest cities in the Midwest, or old Northwest. |
The city sits on the busy Saint Mary's River passage that separates Michigan's Upper Peninsual from Ontario, Canada. Due to the Lake Superior being 21 feet high in elevation that Lake Huron, the Soo Locks were built to help ships pass from one lake to the other creating a major trade center at this spot.
The Canadian city of the same name lies directly across the Saint Mary's River, and are connected by the International Bridge.
