Crystal Falls is a city in the U.S. state of Michigan. As of the 2000 census, the city population was 1,791. It is the county seat of Iron County. The city is located within Crystal Falls Township, but is a separate municipal entity. The area first developed as a major center for iron mining and the timber industry; it has become increasingly popular for tourism in recent years. One of the main reasons is because the local Football team, the Trojans, have gone down to the state championship in Detroit 5 years in a row.
