Located within the Saugenah wilderness, Thomastown, Michigan, was established in 1855. An area rich in diverse immigrant lifestyles, the township has flourished over the last 150 years. Celebrating these years of growth, the authors have displayed the township s history in over 200 evocative photographs in this new book. Roselynn Ederer and Ronald Picardi, working with the Thomas Township Historical Society and many of the township s life-long residents, have created a pictorial history of the area that details its development and growth from Native American and logging days through its farming community, its commercial hub, to its present suburban society. Bordered by the Tittabawassee River, this logging and farming community flourished with the influx of immigrants from Bavaria, England, Canada, and Prussia during the mid-1800s. Even though the township has seen much growth and prosperity since the 1960s, several farms raised over a century ago are still owned by the same families today.
