Petoskey is a resort city in Michigan state, settled in 1852 and named after Ottawa Indian Chief Pe-to-se-ga. Initially, it was a lumber town due to easy access to Lake Michigan. The economy was shifted from lumber business to tourism and small manufacturing (plastics, wood products, auto parts). Petoskey was famous for biding hunting in the late 19th century. Over fifty thousand bids were killed in massive hunts, which eventually led to complete extinction in the 20th century. The city is also famous for the high concentration of ancient fossil coral, named Petoskey stones after Odawa Chief Ignatius Petosega. These stones are designated as the state stone of Michigan.
