A Very Different Grand Junction

Just A Jaunt From Lake Michigan
Grand Junction, Michigan is an unincorporated town in the southwest corner of the state about 14 miles from the mighty Lake Michigan. Unlike its counterpart in Colorado that was named for the confluence of two rivers, Grand Junction, Michigan is so-named because it is located at the junction of two rail lines.
While the Grand Junction, Colorado area is known for its peaches and grapes, the area around Grand Junction, Michigan is known as the "Blueberry Capital of the World." Aside from the name and being known for fruit, these two Grand Junction's have very little in common as you are about to see.
