As our state developed from the 1600s to present day, many small towns and villages were abandoned and left to be reclaimed by nature.  We now refer to many of these places as Michigan Ghost Towns and you can still find remains of old buildings, roads, railways, and ports at the original locations.

Over the next several weeks we will be listing these towns, where you can find them, and what remains.  First we will start with ghost towns in the lower peninsula and then moving north to the U.P.  This is the first installment of the series.
