Sailors Pines - Tour an Old Growth Forest near Croton Dam for Fall Color - 10/31/07 03:27 PM
Sailors Pines is a privately owned preserve of the stately Michigan White Pine where the public is welcome to visit this glimpse of our state's past. Near Croton Pond, stands a testament to Michigan's past, a virgin old growth forest of stately white pines, towering over 100 feet tall and up to 24 inches in diameter. A small plaque marks the entrance which dedicates this forest to the original owners, William and Elizabeth Sailors. The Sailors came from Indiana and became engaged in the lumbering business here in Michigan in the late 1800's. Their son, David, saw all the white pine (0 comments)

That got my interest.... in my 30 plus years doing this, I have never seen a transaction that even after conversation with the buyer an adjustment doesn't need (8 comments)
