ROADSIDE MICHIGAN: Numerous Ghost Towns Surround Mason County’s White Pine Village

Ya ever been to White Pine Village near Ludington? It would make a great stop during this year’s Michigan road-trip!

As many of you already know, Michigan was king when it came to lumbering…this historic village re-creates what life was like in these northern Michigan lumber towns back in the late 1800’s. White Pine Village opened in 1976, with acres & acres packed with history: antiques, artifacts, original log buildings, log cabins, sports Hall of Fame, museums, a rare original Opera Car, an operating saw mill, the very first Mason County courthouse which was constructed in 1849 and much more (SEE THE PHOTO GALLERY ABOVE).

If the kids get whiny (and they won’t), there’s an ice cream parlor, gift shop with old-fashioned toys and lots of antiques & memorabilia for mom & pop.

White Pine Village opens from May 6 thru October 21 this year and it’s not that far away…it’s just a mile or two south of Ludington, a block away from the Lake Michigan shoreline in Mason County.

By the way, Mason County has PLENTY of ghost towns that you may wanna check out while you’re in the area:
AMBER, on US-10
BACHELOR near Batcheller Lake
HAMLIN, near Hamlin Lake
WELDON CREEK, east of Ludington on US-10
…just to name a few…there are plenty more for you to scope.
