Marlette's Mastodon at the Train Depot

On Sundays in October from 2-5pm, the Marlette Historical Society is opening their lovely restored 1890 train depot to visitors. On display is a 10,000 year old mastodon skull that was unearthed 12 years ago on a nearby farm. Marlette is celebrating its 150th birthday this year and the fossil is on loan from the University of Michigan where it normally resides. Situated on the Flint & Pere Marquette Railroad line, the historical society purchased the depot in 1999 and this multi-use building now can be enjoyed by many.
