O.K., I wasn’t really lost in Silverwood, that would be hard to do since there are only a few streets in the town. I did find this building that looks like and old school house or a church, or probably both. There is an old store in town that I have tried to get a pic of a few times but every time I am in Silverwood there was a truck parked in front of it, oh well, maybe on the next trip.
When the railroad (later part of the Pere Marquette Railway) was built through here in 1882, the residents applied for a post office. One suggested naming it something easy to remember, and the post office named “Easy” opened on April 13, 1882, with James R. Chapin as the first postmaster. The name changed to “Rollo” on March 27, 1890, and changed again on May 2, 1892 to “Silverwood”, after the nearby stands of white pine. A subdivision plat for the Village of Silverwood was filed on July 19, 1899.
