More than two hundred images depict the history of this mid-Michigan town with a strong Bavarian heritage. A chapter devoted to the town’s churches shows the many hands—and horses—that built places of worship long before the help of heavy machinery. Residents came to expect the Cass River’s annual flooding; dozens of photos show residents and business owners carrying on with daily life in the flooded streets.
