Fayette Historic State Park

A couple of cars loaded with lumber broke loose at the top of the Mud Lake grade and ran into some coal cars at its foot with sad results to all.Escanaba Iron Port1882
By 1872, the Jackson Iron Company had built a six-mile railroad between Fayette and its outlying sites. Hissing steam, the small locomotives A.M. White and J.C. Hicks rumbled past this point delivering carloads of charcoal, wood, and sand for furnace operations.
Evidence of the railroad-grade and roundhouse pit is visible from this site.
