An Interesting Picture …

I took a walk around my campus earlier today, and took some pictures. This is one of the pictures, and it is of a historical marker that I found on my campus. I realize the quality of this picture is poor, but I did read the marker. According to this marker, this area of my college’s campus used to be a settlement. This settlement was involved in Michigan’s lumbering industry over a hundred and fifty years ago. (For those who don’t know, lumbering was a major industry in Michigan, especially northern Michigan, in the nineteenth century). I don’t think most people would care or expect to find a historical marker on their campus. I guess this just goes to show you that you can find history where ever you go or look for it. Even if your college is fairly young compared to other college campuses.

To see other pictures I took and posted to another one of my blogs, click here.
