Traveling along the sunrise side of the state I came across the beautiful old victorian home on U.S. 23 south of Harrisville. Now the Springport Inn, it was the home of Civil war captain Joseph Van Buskirk. Joseph served as a Captain with the 2 Michigan Infantry Company-F. He enlisted on April 23, 1861 in Flint, Michigan at age 25. After the war, he moved to Harrisville and Built this magnificent home for his family in 1877. Van Buskirk was a prominent local businessman in the area until his death in 1905 and was laid to rest in the Springport Cemetery.
it would really mean a lot to me if you Subscribe to Lost In Michigan
