Living In A Small Town

There is something to be said about living in a small town. I grew up in the small town of Holly, Michigan. Best known for its Carry Nation Festival, Holly Hotel, Battle Alley, and Mt Holly Ski & Snowboard Resort. It's right off of I-75 between Pontiac and Flint and if you are ever nearby and want a great pizza, go to the Red Devil in downtown Holly.

Small towns usually still have old buildings, and everyone knows everyone. Holly now has a population of over 6,000 people but when I was going to school there it was around 4500. Although Holly has changed since I lived there, it still holds that same charm I remember while growing up there.

While some may crave the lights and nightlife of the big city and can't wait to get out of their small town, there are those of us that cherish the simplicity, character, and beauty of the small town.

There is a community in Michigan, that is so small you can't call it a town, it's actually an unincorporated community by the name of Caberfae. The population of this small community was only 72 according to the US Census of 2020. It must have been a cold winter in 2020 because two newborns came in along in 2021 and moved the population up to 74.

Caberfae is only 284 acres in size. There are farmers in Michigan that have more land than Caberfae sits on.
