Station: Case Station, MI

Case Station was established about 1899 on the Detroit & Mackinac railroad. A forest branch line left the D&M main line here. The location is about four miles west of Millersburg.


June 21, 1908. Village destroyed. The village of Case, in Presque Isle county, was destroyed early yesterday. A special train conveyed the homeless villagers to Onaway where they were sheltered overnight. Case, at one time, was a thriving town, but since the decline of the lumber industry it has lost many of its inhabinitants. It is doubtful if the town will be rebuilt. Among the buildings destroyed were the railway station, school house and general store. [DFP-6/22/1908]
