I love exploring the historic Fayette ghost town in the Upper Peninsula. I especially like that they buildings are open for visitors to explore. There is one that is secluded in the woods outside of town that was used as the Doctor’s House.
Curtis J. Bellows MD, was a Civil War veteran from Ohio. He came to Fayette in 1870 and practiced medicine in Upper Peninsula town until his death in 1882. He was a popular public speaker, raced horses and studied electricity. He must have been an interesting character in the remote iron smelting town. Visitors can tour the home and see the way the doctor lived back in the town’s heyday.
