These 9 Unbelievable Ruins In Michigan Will Transport You To The Past

Michigan, over the years, has transformed dramatically. From a once-important fur trading post for the United States and Canada, to a mining hub, the golden years of automotive manufacturing, and the epicenter for the middle class, the Mitten has seen it all. The result is countless reminders of our past that are visible in the many abandoned structures that once stood tall. Now, many are slowly being taken over by nature, or remain as mere shells of what they once were.

Here are some such places across Michigan. Have a look.
