A. T. Blackmar built a sawmill in Taymouth Township, Northwest of Birch Run, and shortly after the town was named for him. The post office opened in 1874 and closed in 1904. The town once stood where Blackmar Road and Moorish Road come together and it had a railroad depot where the train would stop, but that is long gone. The sawmill and everything else from the town are gone too. There are some houses in the area and this old shed that I photographed, but I think they were all built after the town lost its post office. Blackmore is another town in Saginaw county that sprang up with a sawmill and then disappeared when the timber was gone.
