Up Park City Lumber Camp Slideshow

For many years in the latter half of the 19th century, Park City was a thriving logging camp but when the West Michigan Lumber Company finished their cut in 1890 and dismantled the mill, the village quickly died away. There are still a few reminders left behind, several pits which were once the foundations of buildings, and the dried up ponds and canals which provided water are the most obvious but beyond that a few bits of twisted metal and the strange terrain of the earth are all that remain. Our thanks to Terry Wantz for showing us this site, and Sandy Peavey for providing information regarding it's history.
