    The best part of waking up is not Folgers in your cup, but knowing that Chuck Norris didn't kill you in your sleep.

    St. Joseph Island is a community of fertile fields, quiet villages and ghosts of another time. It is here the ghosttowner will find the largest and least disturbed collection of ghost town ruins on the entire north shore. It is the ghost town of Milford Haven. Founded in 1835 by an Englishman, it was to have been a new home for settlers from England. The settlement failed to attract many immigrants but did survive into the 20th century when its inhabitants gradually moved away. Even though now enveloped by forest, much of the deserted town still stands. Submitted by: Henry Chenoweth

    We took a drive out there and both entrances were gated. We tried cutting through other driveways but all had huge trees cut down in the paths so we couldn't get in. Hubby had google earthed it and their are about a handful of structures still standing but u have to hike up there on foot. We did get some cool pictures of 2 homes that were old and run down witj DO NOT ENTER written on walls. It was a fun family day
