The town of Byron sits between Lansing and Fenton. 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 Village of Byron was incorporated in 1873 and the Toledo, Ann Arbor & Northern Michigan Railway was built through Byron following the pledge of a $15,001 bonus and the right of way in 1885. I wonder what the significance of the $1 is. It seems like an odd number. Anyway, I saw the old train depot in Byron. It must be privately owned and it looks like the owners love Vernors. It is rather obvious with the yellow and green paint job and the Vernors signs.
