Highbridge Train Bridge

hb_flickrThe Highbridge railroad bridge which the cabins are named after was originally constructed in 1889 over the Manistee River Connecting Kaleva and Baldwin. At the time Highbridge was the tallest railroad bridge in Michigan.

The wooden structure bridge was removed in 1947 and replaced with a metal structure bridge. The bridge at the time was the only crossing at this section of the river so on a daily basis you would see people walking the bridge.

In 1955 they removed the railroad bridge. But to this day if walked the North Country Trail along the river you can still see the trusses to the railroad bridge. Joy and her husband Bob would walked the trail and that is what inspired Joy to name her cabins after the bridge.
