Lost Villages in Oakland and Macomb Counties

The Rochester Hills Museum at Van Hoosen Farm has reprinted a book that discovers the Lost Villages in Oakland and Macomb Counties. If This is Hastings…Then Where is Hog’s Hollow – was originally printed in 1990, but with the explosive residential and commercial growth in Oakland and Macomb Counties over the past thirty years and the ability to do more comprehensive research, the book has been updated. Museum volunteer and researcher Deborah Remer has spent decades visiting sites and researching families, buildings, and maps that are included in this publication. Remer, who grew up in Shelby Township and has volunteered at the Museum for 32 years, has been fascinated with the region’s history and the settlements that many once called home. The book also lists Native American Settlements, stagecoach stops, name changes for communities, Detroit United Railway stops and has a long list of references.

The book is available for purchase at the Museum’s online store for $12.

    Did you say that this book is available at an online store? Because the link in this article does not take me to any page that mentions a book or online store that may have it.
