CK&S Railfans Donate Sign Commemorating Past at Hope Twp Park on Cloverdale Lake
The sign reads:
"The Great Inland Lake Route"
The Chicago, Kalamazoo, and Saginaw Railway traveled next to these lakes , stopping here at the Cloverdale Depot as it steamed from Kalamazoo to Woodbury and back several times daily. It transformed this wilderness area of Barry County to a "recreational destination" setting the economic stage for a significant relationship between its business and the community. The C,K, & S Railway will be forever remembered though its flag has fallen and its tracks are gone.
