Au Train was a fishing village. Surrounding forests and several kilns supplied charcoal for the Munising Furnace. Some local residents recall when Au Train was a village of whitewashed log houses. A one-and-a-half-story side-gable log house survives at E5457 Woodland Avenue. The log Charles Paulson House (1883; N6926 Au Train Forest Lake Road, 2.5 miles south of MI 28) serves as a museum.
