I found this old photo at the Saginaw Public library archives from 1860 of the plank road. It said this is Genesee Street. It looks more like a movie set from a Clint Eastwood western, than downtown Genesee Street. Norman Little (click Here to read about Him) built the first plank road that went from Saginaw to Flint, creating the growth of Saginaw. Downtown sure has changed a lot since 1860.
