Quote:Due to the region's geographic and climatic features similar to Finland, the heaviest levels of Finnish Settlement were seen in an area known as the Finn Hook, which includes northeastern Minnesota, northern Wisconsin, and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Today, the region is known as having the highest population of Americans of Finnish ancestry of any region in the United States; in the northwestern half of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan they make up the plurality of population.

Went to college in the Upper Peninsula and that is pretty accurate. Some parts didn't get electricity or phone service until the 1950s. The Lopers (if they think about them at all) tend to call them apple-knockers and the Uppers (pronounced YOU-PERs) tend to call the Lopers "Trolls".
