Main Street, Pinckney, Mich., circa early 1900’s. A color lithograph postcard shows Main Street in Pinckney, looking from east to west. Hitching posts are all along the front of the stores, and there is no sign of electricity or phone poles. The only readable signs on the storefronts are “Pinckney Dispatch” on the first low building, and “Monk Bros” in the middle of the block.

History of the Huron River Chain of Lakes

Before continuing the journey down the Huron River, we’ll explore two creeks that run into Portage Lake from nearby communities, Honey Creek that runs from Pinckney, and Portage Creek that runs from Hell. Both Pinckney and Hell are important locations in the lakes community.**
