One of the first posts I did when I started Lost In Michigan was the Richard C. Burtis house in Watrouseville. It is affectionately called the “Wedding Cake House” by the locals. I never knew this house existed I was just out roaming the back roads in the thumb and came upon it. My discovery has inspired me to keep traveling the back roads looking for other interesting places.
The house was built in1879 for Richard C. Burtis, a shoemaker and one of the area’s most prominent landowners. He built the house as a gift for his wife. The current owners have been working to restore the old house. They have said strange things have been happening in the home since they have lived in it. The house will be featured on an upcoming episode of a Travel Channel show called the Ghost Brothers. You can find out more about the house on their facebook page HERE
Please note the house is not abandoned so please do not trespass
