I like traveling down roads that run next to a river, and while I was traveling along next to the Pine River in southern Midland county I came across what looks like an old service station. When I checked on Google maps, it had the name of Porter at that location which is the name of the township in Midland County, and according to records there was a post office located somewhere near this old gas station. Maybe this was the post office at one time, but I am not positive about that. In 1869 Lewis K. Brewer became the first postmaster after holding an election at his home to form the township. The post office operated for almost 40 years until it closed in 1907. I guess the old farm implements and gas pump tells part of the story and the rest of the story remains lost in time.
