No. 5 of the Nahma and Northern Railway, now in a static display in down Nahma.  2003  [Dale Berry]

     Nahma was a mill town along the north side of Lake Michigan, just west of the Garden Peninsula.  The town and mill were established as early as 1856, when it gained its first post office.  According to Michigan Place Names, Nahma is an Indian word for sturgeon.  [MPN]

     Nahma was the home of the Nahma and Northern Railroad, which went north from Lake Michigan for miles into the Upper Peninsula to reach logging camps.  The N&N had 51 miles of track north of the Lake.
