    Default New River, Michigan

    Anyone ever heard of New River Michigan?

    It's in the thumb near Bad Axe. I was last there around 1992. I didn't see much left except foundations, but the underbrush is so thick there, that I didn't do much exploring.

    I'm just surprised it's not listed on any of the web-sites.

    That is a new one to me. I might have to go to Cass City to look at a truck in the near future. If I go I may have to do a little looking around.

    New River is long gone.

    This company town vanished after the close of the lumber boom in the late 1800s. Located near the tip of Michigan's Thumb near Grindstone City and Port Austin. More about his vanished town can be found at my blog.
