Grand Trunk depot at Charlotte, MI.

The Grand Trunk depot in Charlotte, MI, was built in 1885. The 1912 postcard image below, now 100 years old, show it to be a busy place. The other photographs were taken in the spring of 2012, and show that time and vandals have extracted a heavy toll on the 127 year old (as of year 2012) building. It could not be determined what it looked like on the inside, but an addition on the back suggest it was used for other purposes over the years. Perhaps funds for restoration will appear before the building is beyond saving.
