... city we made before we crossed over into Michigan. We did a little antique shopping and stopped in at a museum which was a converted CNW railroad depot. It had a nice mix of railroad memorabilia and community history stuff.

Will be in Canada either tomorrow or Tuesday - enroute to Niagra Falls.
Stay tuned for more adventures.
