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.
Hello this is Gregory Seckler. I am a current owner of the Michigan State police post at 1011 N. Mission St., Mount Pleasant MI 48858. The building and property is now used as our corporate office for Associated business machines Inc. If you have any questions you can email me at the email I’ve listed below. We use this building as a service center for working on vacuum cleaners, typewriters, Office Machimes, copiers, printers and sewing machines.
I’d like info on the former state police post, between Alma and Ithaca Michigan in gratiot county.
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!
