In The Wilderness of Northern Michigan "He Built It...and They Came!"..Amazing Coopersville Old West Town!

This story is so amazing to me!

It's the stuff that movies like FIELD OF DREAMS are made!

Michigan Magazine never in our wildest dreams ever thought something could "snowball" so fast and make so many people happy as this little old west town called Coopersville in Oscoda county.

It was just last year that Spike, the owner, saw in his minds eye a small old western town that could bring back a time he remembered in his childhood...where good and evil was not so "blurred".

Spike passed his vision on to friend and neighbor "Stan" who believed that it was possible to create....and the two set to work.

Now a little over a year later hundreds of families from all over the U.S. have made their way to this "step back in time"...A sort of pilgrimage to a time lost but fondly remembered.

Many have signed this board at the entrance of Coopersville..showing their support and thanks to Spike and "crew"...for bringing a smile to the little ones and a fond recollection to us adults......

Stay tuned to Michigan Magazine for the story of "Coopersville Old West Town" to be aired this fall on Michigan Magazine/RFD TV...

Spike and Stan tell the story..
