Today we might call it a commuter train or a light rail.
The Grand Rapids, Grand Haven & Muskegon Railway operated the Interurban in this area. Carl Bajema, Jim Budzynski and Dave Kindem have recently published a book — “The Lake Line: GR, GH & M.” They will be the featured speakers at a program at the Tri-Cities Historical Museum at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 31.
Jack Rollenhagen, a former Nunica resident, had collected photos of the Interurban line. Rollenhagen’s photos were the incentive for Bajema and Budzynski to begin researching the Interurban. Kindem joined in their efforts and the result is one of the most complete compilations about the history of the Interurban in this area.
This free program is open to the public. The authors will have copies of their books available for sale and signing.
