Michigan Bluff

Founded in 1850 and first known as Michigan City which was located on slope one half mile from here. In 1858 town became undermined and unsafe so was moved to this location and renamed Michigan Bluff. Leland Stanford, who gained wealth and fame in California, operated a store in Michigan City from 1853 to 1855.
