History[edit]

The community was named for John Schroeder, a lumber baron.[2] The Schroeder Lumber Company Bunkhouse, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, stands near the town. It is the last remaining structure of a logging camp that existed from 1895 through 1905.

At the mouth of the Cross River is the place where Frederic Baraga safely washed ashore on a boat during a storm in 1846. In thanks he left a cross, now replaced by a granite one.
