Two Views of Cass City

Cass City Michigan Postcard 1930

Cass City Michigan 1930

This amazing west-facing view of Cass City Road in Cass City has stayed somewhat unchanged for the past 90 years. Some of the buildings remain, many have been remodeled. However, the ornate trim and front facades and balconies are long gone.

The New Sheridan Hotel

The three-story building on the left was the Sheridan Hotel built-in 1895 by Michael Sheridan. It was considered a skyscraper in its day. Constructed of iron, brick, and glass and topped with a distinctive “witches cap”. This Victorian-era structure was a common project in successful smaller towns across America and it was a point of pride for the residents of Cass City.

    try to get the grasp of it!
