List of lost cities, towns, and counties of Michigan facts for kids

(Redirected from Lost cities, towns, and counties of Michigan)

The following is a list of cities, towns, villages and counties of Michigan that no longer exist as separate entities but are generally still inhabited. Many of these were settlements that faded away or were swallowed up into larger adjoining communities.

Lost cities generally fall into three broad categories: those whose disappearance has been so complete that no knowledge of the city existed until the time of its rediscovery and has been studied, those whose location has been lost but whose memory has been retained in the context of myths and legends, and those whose existence and location have always been known, but which are no longer inhabited.


Lost towns are listed by their former name, the present-day county where they are located, and their location relative to present-day maps. If further information about these communities is available it is included briefly as well. This list is not comprehensive.
