This is an article about where Metropolitan used to be in Dickinson County

Metropolitan was a thriving village established just after 1880 to exploit the iron ore in the nearby Metropolitan Mine. Metropolitan was about one mile west of Felch[5] and was the last station on a branch of the Chicago and North Western Railway coming west from Escanaba. The village was platted by the Metropolitan Mining Company in 1881. A post office was in operation there from 1881 until 1963.[4] The present Zion Lutheran Church of Metropolitan sits almost exactly on the site of the old village, which is now nothing but a string of farms along the country roads. Metropolitan was sometimes referred to as Milltown and Farmertown
