Grand Ledge passenger station

Unread post by Dan Cluley »

I assume there must have been one, but I don't know where it was located, and it doesn't seem to be on the 1916 Sanborn map I checked.

Anyone know where exactly the station was located?

Sometime recently I researched this and posted the results to to some discussion board, I forget where.

Going from memory, after about 1928, the passenger depot was on the south side of the track along Washington Street near the end of Mineral Street, a ways west of M-100. Prior to that, it was along Union Street, east of the freight house.
