How did Pere Cheney become a ghost town?

Jul 12, 2017

If you like bird watching, Pere Cheney is a great place to see the Kirtland Warbler. Other than that, there isn't much there.

It's what you might call a ghost town.

If you're wondering how that happened, you're not alone. Michigan Radio listener Olivia Cushway of Ypsilanti posed that very question to our MI Curious team. 

Cushway joined Stateside today to hear her question answered by Steve Ostrander​ of the Michigan History Center.

Listen above.
