The above article was found in The Fowlerville Review. Mr. Craig was a shoemaker and very active businessman in Fowlerville, as well as equally active in the M.E. Church. When I was doing research for my book, The Fowlerville Chronicles, I came across an article written in the late 1980s regarding the William Craig home located on Frank Street. A picture of the house at that time is shown below.
So one has to wonder what it looked like in 1906 -- the same? smaller before any additions? real shutters? different or no landscaping? But then, I've wondered who else was interested in electricity once a few houses had been wired. Found my answer:
S.T. Blackmer is having his home wired for the electric light. The fine service given by the Fowlerville Lighting Co. is bringing them a large amount of new business.
