Where is Cheboygan, Michigan, USA? 

Cheboygan was originally an Ojibwe settlement. In 1844, Jacob Sammons, a cooper from Fort Mackinac, chose the old native camping ground (then called "Shabwegan") as the site for his cabin. He recruited other settlers, and a post office named "Duncan" was established in 1846. The area became known as Cheboygan in 1870. It was incorporated as a village in 1871 and as a city in 1889.It was made the county seat in 1853. There was a theater built in town in 1877.Wikipedia
