About this Event

In the 1880s, the small town of Averill, just west of Midland City, boasted the “largest banking grounds in the world” on the banks of the Tittabawassee River. Join Cathy Fitzpatrick, CNC's Historic Interpreter, for a stroll into Averill's past at the famous banking grounds. Here, you’ll hear local lumbering tales, view historic photos of the site and appreciate recent efforts the Little Forks Conservancy has made to preserve its rich history and natural resources. Wear walking shoes and meet in Averill at the Tittabawassee River overlook of the Pere Marquette Rail Trail, at the pavilion, where we'll begin our hike.
