Flint Postcards: Oak Grove Sanitarium


  1. I’m impressed, I must say. Really seldom do I learn a weblog that is equally educational and entertaining, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head.

  2. Thats where Flint Central and the Public Library are now located.

  3. Does anyone know what that historic building is behind the Mott College visitors' parking lot? It looks like it's being restored. I thought it might be a part of the Oak Grove campus..?


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
