Escanaba is a port city in Delta County in the U.S. state of Michigan, located on the Escanaba River in the banana belt of the state's Upper Peninsula. The population was 12,616 at the 2010 census, making it the third-largest city in the Upper Peninsula after Marquette and Sault Ste. Marie. It is the seat of government of Delta County.There is also Escanaba Township, which is north of the city and is not adjacent to it, although a portion of the urban area around the city extends into the township. Both are named for the Escanaba River, which flows into the Little Bay de Noc of Lake Michigan just north of the city at. The names are derived from the Ojibwa language.HistoryEscanaba was the name of an Ojibwa village in this area in the early 19th century. The word "Escanaba" roughly translates from Ojibwe and other regional Algonquian languages to "land of the red buck", although some people maintain that it refers to "flat rock".As a later European-American settlement, Escanaba developed in the 19th century as a port town located on Little Bay de Noc at the northern edge of Lake Michigan. By the time of theAmerican Civil War, it was important to the Union as a shipping point for iron ore, lumber and copper.
