Cascade is an unincorporated community in Marquette County, in the U.S. state of Michigan.[1]

The community was named from the presence of the Cascade Iron Mining Company in the area.[2] Iron ore was discovered in the area in 1873, and the station at the junction between the Chicago and Northwestern Railway and the Marquette, Houghton and Ontonagon Railroad was called Cascade Junction.[3]
