After stopping at Barton Dam, I decided to continue on Huron River Drive. Then I found my way out to M-52 to continue on to I-96 to continue on to Grand Rapids. Normally I don't find myself heading out that way, so I decided to stop in Stockbridge for a couple pictures.
Stockbridge doesn't look all that much different from many of the other towns along the way. Its first settlers arrived in 1835. The town was planned by Elijah Smith and he was going to name it Pekin. Before he could register the town, he was bought out by Silas Beebe. Mr. Beebe thought the railroad would be passing through and Mr. Smith knew that wasn't going to happen immediately. The railroad wouldn't arrive until 1883.
