Flint Artifacts: Huckleberry Railroad Hat


  1. Ah, the Huckleberry Railroad. It was here that most young Flintoids had their first experience with banditry, robbery, terror, and train jacking.

    I'm not sure exactly when they put the kibosh on the train robbers, but nevertheless, I now know how to properly deal with bandits on horseback.

  2. I was in a tv show that was filmed at Huckleberry Railroad. It was about Thomas Edison as a youth and i was in the "school house scene". Still remember our lines! Can't find a link anywhere on the internet, however. Anybody out there remember the show or has anyone found a copy online?


Thanks for commenting. I moderate comments, so it may take a while for your comment to appear. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at
