It ain't easy finding much info on the vanished town of doesn't help that NOTHING IS LEFT OF THE TOWN. Zip. Zero. No homes, no stores, and just faint ghosts of old former town streets. Someone says there's still an old dilapidated log cabin somewhere in the area but I couldn't find it.

What we DO know about Tula is that it was born when a post office was established in the area in 1907. Tula was a lumber town, which obviously relied on timber and the railroads to keep bringing in the revenue.

Tula had always been a small town, with a population of only 100 in 1915; but just one year later in 1916 the post office folded and so did the town, just like many other Upper Peninsula towns before it. The entire population abandoned the town, leaving it to nature and wildlife which eventually wore it down to nothing.

Looking at the satellite photos of Tula, you can see bare spots of land where the trees were cut down and depleted...trees were never regrown on these patches because everyone had left!

Nowadays, there are faint reminders of the streets that once were and the railroad still runs through. If you decide to take a drive to Tula, keep in mind, there is NOTHING's a TRUE ghost town. But you just might be able to find some sort of remnant within the small woods next to the tracks...who knows? It may be an empty town, but it IS historic.

Tula is located about 15 miles northeast of Wakefield, along M-28 in Gogebic County. Take a look for yourself when you roadtrip through the Upper Peninsula!
