Northern Michigan is particularly well known for its ghost towns, remnants of the mining industry around Houghton and the Keweenaw Peninsula. But the story of Pauline, Michigan, is the story of a town no one remembers.
Okay we get it, some northern Michigan locations don't have much of a population. A little hamlet like Toivola can claim a post office if not much else, but its USPS outpost looks like little more than a tiny house cut in half.
Ask just about anyone in the Central Upper Peninsula about Goofus and you're likely to hear a story about the man who plays his unique polka-cello one-man-band instrument at a parade or small bar. Sadly, Goofus has recently passed away.
