Pictures and Postcards do a great job of capturing a moment in time. We found these gems throughout the Internet and made the collection from the 1800’s thru the 1960s. They are fascinating glimpse of Caseville history in pictures. It’s also amazing on what has not really changed over the past 80 years. Many buildings and landmarks are still visible today.

Caseville’s history in pictures shows its transformation from lumbering to an industrial village and finally to a resort and tourist town. While the railroad was completed in 1881 delivering freight and passengers it never had the tourist appeal that Bay Port with its fine hotel and Pointe Aux Barques with its resort cottages. The Upper Thumb tourism industry got its start with the completion of M-25 around the Thumb in the 1930s. M-25 was Michigan’s first scenic highway.

Today, Caseville is known for its large beachfront, excellent harbor and its festivals. Ribstock kicks off the summer with BBQ and great country music, Cheeseburger in Caseville pays tribute to Jimmy Buffet music, grilled burgers and a chance to be a Parrothead for a week and Shanty Days offers a mid-winter blast of fun on the ice.
