This blog is an attempt to educate, stimulate and bring Gratiot County’s history to interested readers. What you view here is always a work in progress. I seldom ever intend to tell the whole story behind these posts and I invite readers to provide comment about corrections, additions, and feedback. While my primary focus is on Gratiot County during the early 20th century (1910-1950, or pre-World War I through World War II), the 20th century is a gold mine of history, information, and stories pertaining to Gratiot County’s past. I invite you to “jump on board and catch a ride.”
