Sault Ste. Marie is the name of two cities on Saint Mary‘«÷s River, separating Canada and the State of Michigan in the United States. Founded as a fur trading settlement in 1668, the town was split into two in 1797 when the Upper Peninsula was transferred to the U.S. The Saint Mary‘«÷s River joins Lake Superior to Lake Huron. The two cities are joined by the International Bridge; the nearby Soo Locks bypass the River‘«÷s rapids, and carries more tonnage than any other canal in the world.
