  1. Well written piece permitting a walk down memory lane.

  2. Wish my parents were still alive, they use to talk about things of the past…. I can’t remember where for sure but my dads mom taught at some country school over by Port Hope. or perhaps it was my dads gramma. History is only as good as peoples memories that are written down and then after years people wonder if it was written down by the actual person facts or by stories they heard… Like Port Crescent i thought all the lumber burned in the fire of 1881 or i believe later years in the late 1880;s there was another fire… and the lumber mill where the chimney stands they mention in this article was all that was left from the great fire…..again, the old cemetary in Port Crecent is not a historical state site. grandpa is in there and my great grandpa too and family

    My folks long time family friend, Leon Bateman, Huron County Road Commisioner in those days, called for the shore drive portion of M-25 between Caseville and Port Austin that provides the impressive view of Saginaw Bay.

      It seems that Northwest Michigan gets all the attention with the winerys and M-22’s “tunnel of trees” This post was to point out M-25’s Scenic Highway wae first and are still here. Thanks for stopping by.
