The town of Verne was in Albee township near the intersection of Sheridan and Verne Roads. It was a coal mining town named after the mine. The Cincinnati Saginaw & Mackinaw Railroad had a rail line that went thru the town and even had a station there. I could not find when the coal mine opened but a post office was opened in 1884. The mine closed in 1900 and a year later the post office closed. Verne is another one of those little towns in Saginaw County that popped up to support the company and when the company closed the town disappeared.
