Gone Ghost

Made a late afternoon stop at Fayette Historic Townsite outside of Garden, Michigan while on our way home from Pictured Rocks. An interesting place, it’s an abandoned Victorian era iron smelting town that had it’s boom and bust and is now a State historic site and Park. Click the image below to open a photo gallery.
