Wikipedia’s National Mine, Michigan entry says that National Mine is an unincorporated community in Tilden Township (Marquette County), located just south of the city of Ishpeming.

The village was founded in 1878 as part of the estate of the Lake Superior Iron Company, in the Winthrop Range. It was given a post office on December 5, 1879, with Richard F. Ellis as its first postmaster.

For Paul Harvey, this is Andy McFarlane saying have a great weekend!
