  1. Hello,

    How about state police posts in St. Ignace, mi and Ithaca, mi?

    My name is Matthew L. Bellinger. I have lived here in Winn, MI for 38 years. History is of great priority to me. I have five children of my own and a question that deeply pre-occupies me is, “what do I deeply, deeply need to communicate to them that I want them to remember after I am gone?”

      Hello there — we have the St. Ignace post listed, as well as more than 30 similar WPA buildings from that time. We do not have evidence that the former Ithaca facility was a WPA construction at this time.

    Hi Stephanie, I’m looking at the PDFs regarding the State Police history that I downloaded from Michigan’s website a few years back (but no longer seem to be available online). Gratiot County is located in District 6, and I’m not seeing any information on them; sorry!
