While I was traveling along the west side of the state near Lake Michigan I came across this old house near Norwood. South of Charlevoix the little town was settled in 1866 when Orvis Wood, Lucius Pearl, and Orwin Adams built a dock and sawmill on the shore of Lake Michigan. The town thrived as a lumber-shipping center with sawmills, a company store, and blacksmith shops. Over time the little town dwindled in population as lumbering in the area died off. It’s mostly just houses now and a nice little church and historic town hall.
