Midland

Her Continuing Story

Once a small settlement at the junction of the Tittabawassee and Chippewa Rivers, Midland began as a humble community and grew to become a testament to industrialization. Settlers populated the city and ambitiously founded a tiny lumbering village, which soon developed into a regional hub of the lumbering industry. Nearly a century after it was settled, Midland County experienced an oil boom, and consequently became the state's leader in oil production, bringing prosperity and further industrialization to the area.In their previous book, Midland: The Way We Were, Virginia Florey and Leona Seamster documented the significant people and places that have shaped Midland's rich history. In their second installment, Midland: Her Continuing Story, they have included the history of neighboring towns-Averill, Sanford, Coleman, Hope, and Edenville-that played a significant role in the lumbering era. Through nearly 200 historical photographs and a collection of unprecedented personal stories, Florey and Seamster again explore this fascinating region and focus on its proud heritage as an industrial leader.
