The island has a long Native American history and is recognized in the Treaty of 1836 with Washington. Approximately 2 miles north of Beaver Island, it is currently uninhabited but at one time was home to Native Americans who farmed, fished, and harvested maple syrup. Later European immigrants arrived and established a town called Success with a post office. This island is designated a Wildlife Research Area and is under the management of the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, Wildlife Division.
