New Book about Springville Township. From the first settlers in Springville, through the changes over the years, to the present time, our township’s story is finally told.
Where did Springville Township get it’s name?
What part did the village of Sherman play?
How did Mesick become the “Crossroads” of northwest Michigan?
What became of “Ghost towns” Coline, Miner’s Rollway and Glengarry?
How was there almost a Buckley Dam, a Sherman Dam and a Mesick Dam?
Why did Springville shrink from 216 square miles to the current 36 square miles?
Was Mrs. Howard Mesick’s name “Eleanor” or “Ellenor?”
These and many more questions are answered in Dr. Ben Townsend’s new book – “T23 North, R12 West: The Story of Springville Township, Michigan.”
You can obtain your copy at the Mesick Pharmacy and other places around town for $19.95 plus tax.
