Land of the Million Dollar Sunset

Petoskey has been called the “Land of the Million Dollar Sunset” since 1873, thanks to a dazzled reporter who arrived just as the sun was sinking into Lake Michigan. On a late fall day that year, the train whistled to a stop at the new end of its line–Petoskey. On board to celebrate were the governor of Michigan, other dignitaries and a reporter for a Grand Rapids newspaper, who raved about the area’s “million dollar sunsets.”
