Spurr Township is a civil township of Baraga County in the U.S. state of Michigan. The population was 227 at the 2000 census.

The township had been organized while it was part of Houghton County. It was one of the four original townships of Baraga County when it was set off from Houghton in 1875. It is named for "Spurr Mountain", the site of an iron ore mine, first named the "Spurr Mountain Mining Company", organized in 1872. Operations ceased in 1878, and then resumed again in 1881 under a reorganized "Spurr Iron Mining Company". [3] A post office named "Spurr Mountain" opened December 30, 1874 and was discontinued December 15, 1887. It was reestablished June 4, 1890 and operated until June 30, 1896.[4]
