I did a little browsing through some of the 1880 issues of "The Fowlerville Review," looking forward something interesting to put on this blog. Sometimes it is almost overwhelming, there's so much from medical and dental treatments for the time, store openings (such as by R. Fowler), council minutes, prices of dry goods and groceries.
The following article grabbed my attention as I see more and more articles in the local paper of an opiate problem here in Fowlerville and its surrounding area. I guess nearly 140 years ago it wasn't quite so different.
If anyone has a subject matter, era, names and/or businesses they would like me to research, let me know and I'll see what I can do.
