    Need more ideas in locating a Park

    We are trying to find a park in Michigan. The park dates from the late 1800's to the end of World War 1. We have tried Ancient map works , The county map offices , Auditors office . The park required a river boat ride 2 to 3 miles was said to be the PLACE to PARTY. To this day we can not come up with any helpful. I have talked to my Uncle (98 years old and he can not remember it) We know the name of the park but are not having any luck. Do any of you know ways to locate such a place ? You also realize why we are not saying it's name.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Do you know if there are any other names for the park? Perhaps the name you have is not correct.

    Post the name of it, county and what you figure the nearest town is plus IDing land marks. Folks on here will likely be able to help out rather fast.

    Maybe the best way to find it is with boots on the ground. More exciting that way. Best of luck with finding its location.

    Parks change names over time. One park in my area changed names 2 times in the last 50 years. Another park in my area was founded in 1905-1910 and was in use for 50 years is now a VFW post. The park you are looking for may now be streets and homes or a wooded area now. Ask some old timers or go to the historical society in the area and ask questions.

    I was going to suggest the local historical society also. My historical society just had a meeting two days ago and one of the “older” ladies talked about her swimming coach and in 1928 she taught her to swim. She described the “swimming hole” in the river. Half the crowd knew where she was talking about, except me. I am going to do a little research. Maybe it has never been hunted.

    Yes we know of 2 parks names for it. My uncle lived in the town for almost 60 years. He is now 98 and does not remember either name. My uncle was born in 1920. We we hoping someone could give us some ideas to use. We do not want someone finding it for us and i think you all can understand

    Try this, If you can narrow the town, or even go town by town, google FULL TEXT then Enter town name, then state initials, then type history.

    So example would be "FULL TEXT Detroit MI History"

    Then click the link to archive dot org.

    Should be an online book. then press ctrl F and use the word find function to find the name of your park.

    Check your county website for historical maps or an old county atlas.

    Or if you know a general location you can try historicaerials.com
