In the early 1830s, the Goodrich brothers, Moses and Enos, were living a good life in Clarence, New York but they dreamed of building a new life in a new place. They heard tales of beautiful, fertile land in the undiscovered area surrounded by the Great Lakes called Michigan. They spoke with their f...

can anyone give me any information about the historic Icehouse or Icehouse property in Goodrich?
Goodrich is my birthplace but my family moved away when I was 3 years old so I didn't have the privilege of growing up there but had many relatives there and my grandparents and others are buried in the Goodrich cemetery. Several cousins graduated from Goodrich High Scool.
Looking forward to seeing you at Goodrich Homecoming on Friday October 5, 2018. Parade starts at 5 pm.
Hi, can anyone help me with the background as to the naming of a hill in Groveland call Enders hill? I did a google search for Enders hill as there is one here in Australia and it came up with one in Michigan in Groveland Co near a fire station. My ancestors moved from NY State to the Goodrich area in the 1860's or 70's on lived in Goodrich and Ortonville. A number are buried in the Goodrich Cemetery. Thanks Gary Enders
I had another old photo that was taken in either Goodrich or Ortonville at one of the Enders Family homes. It would be the home of either George, Norman or Samuel Enders. Approx 1900 and most likely a 4th of July celebration. Very ornate house and was wondering if it was still standing.
Have any photo's of the old Goodrich Hospital. It was a house at the time and it is where I was born. I was next to the Mill Pond?

Hello! I have old photographs I need to share with this group!
Engraving of Harry H Enders home . Date unknown.
Photo taken in 1897 at Harry H Enders home in Goodrich on the occasion of his neices visit from Australia. I was wondering if the house was still there today?
