The Evolving History of Caseville in Pictures and Postcards

Caseville Postcard

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 1800s thru the 1960s. They are a fascinating glimpse of the history of Caseville in pictures. It’s also amazing 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 had 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. The rise of tourism in the area was encouraged by most of the shoreline towns of the Thumb.
