If you are wondering where New Zebedee Michigan is located you are not alone because I never heard of it also. I was watching the movie The House With The Clock In Its Walls. and at the beginning of the movie, a young boy was traveling on a bus to live with his uncle in New Zebedee. I had to find out where it’s located and to my surprise, it is a fictional town in a book inspired by a real town. John Bellairs, born in 1938, grew up in Marshall Michigan. He wrote the book inspired by an old house in his hometown. The Cronin House (Pictured in this post) is located down the street from the high school. Bellairs went past this house going to and from school every day. Sadly Bellairs died in 1991, but he did inspire me to take a trip to Marshall to see this old house. There is a lot more to the story but I am thinking that may be for the next Lost In Michigan book.
