Station: Vernon, MI
Vernon was settled about 1833 and became a village in 1871. [MPN] The Detroit & Milwaukee railroad (later GTW) came through here in 1856 and established a station here.
The Ann Arbor also came through later, using the GTW line.
This is not South Vernon, which is on the CN east-west main line west of Durand.
