Lost Essex County – Southwick

Today we jump in the car and head back to the county, in search of more lost Essex County. The map shows the town as being just south of the Michigan Central tracks in this map from 1959.

The MCRR tracks are long gone, but the remains of the rail line can still be seen.

Across the street in a field, there appeared to be a pile of junk.

Upon further inspection it would seem that that’s where all the railroad ties ended up. 🙂

A view just south of the tracks towards Southwick reveals nothing more than a handful of houses.
