The city takes its name from the Manistique River. The economy also depends heavily on tourism.HistoryOriginally named Eastport, Manistique replaced Onota as the county seat. Eppsport was the name of the post office, but was not used for the community. Manistique was incorporated as a village in 1883 and as a city in 1901 by the state legislature.
