I wrote an essay several years ago about the decline of Michigan Central Station (aka "Michigan Central Depot") and how several factors led to its state of demise and decay long before it was closed in 1988. With the news of Ford buying and planning on restoring the building, my essay now seems outdated and useless, but some of the dates and events below may still be of some interest.

Be optimistic and build a better future, but don't ignore and forget the lessons from the past...
