Fallasburg

Fallasburg, Michigan, is a historic village about 20 miles east of Grand Rapids. Founded by John Wesley Fallas on the Flat River in 1839, Fallasburg was the home of a sawmill and chair factory, both long since gone. Today, a few houses, a barn, and a covered bridge are all that is left of Fallasburg.  The covered bridge, whose 100 feet span the Flat River, was built in 1871.

Lowell, Michigan

Took a drive out to Lowell this morning, which rewarded me with some colorful shots of some old buildings. But it was the grain elevator for the local milling company that first caught my eye as a potential black and white photograph.Lowell Main Street-1Lowell Main Street-1-2Lowell Main Street-1-3Lowell Main Street-1-4Lowell Main Street-1-5Lowell Grain Elevator-1.jpg
