  • This picture offers a bit of Caseville Harbor history. The shot looked out to Saginaw Bay from the interior harbor on the Pigeon River in 1941.

The shot has amazing similarities to the famous Fishtown in Leland County. Caseville Harbor in 1948
  • Fall is my favorite time to be in Michigan’s Thumb. The Caseville Cheeseburger Festival has long since passed. The Labor Day weekend has come and gone. Things are quieter. I can now cross M-25 over the beach in silence and without fear. What a great season. The Michigan Thumb Sparkles in Late Summer
