West Michigan Pike History

"A land of countless lakes and streams, swept by the cool breezes of Lake Michigan the summer through, Western Michigan has long been the favorite playground of the Middle West. Fine scenery, its delightful climate, its opportunies for sport, recreation, or rest, alike contribute to make it a summer paradise, where hundreds of resorts offer a cheery hospitiality to the tourist." - Foreward from the West Michigan Pike Tourist Directory (1915)
