For some, it’s the shores and many beaches of Lake Superior. For others, it’s the hiking, biking and nature trails that students and locals enjoy. One location that may come to mind is the cascading levels of the Hungarian Falls, part of which was recently listed by real estate for potential private ownership. The Upper Hungarian Falls, located on the same 10-acre land as an impoundment pond formerly used by the Torch Lake Township Fire Authority, and a small dam from the mining era, was listed in December of 2012. The property listing was shortly removed thereafter because of an uproar from the community. In particular, concerned community member Clay Hixson created a Facebook page titled “Save the Hungarian Falls” to gain support of keeping the falls open for public access.
