Gogebic County was organized by an act of the legislature approved February 2, 1887, and Bessemer, despite the rivalry of other communities, was declared the county seat. A $75,000 brownstone courthouse was erected, and in 1889, Bessemer, under the spur of its position as the seat of justice of the county, assumed its status as a city.
