The small town of Byron sits between Fenton and Durand. Founded in 1824 it was the last stop on a stagecoach run from Detroit that ran west along what is now Rose Center road and Silver Lake road. The town continued to grow after the Toledo, Ann Arbor & Northern Michigan Railway ran tracks through the community. Tragically, in October of 2012, a fire destroyed many historic buildings in downtown. I was driving through on a sunny summer day and I had to stop and get a pic.
