Can you really ever go home again? Well, yes and no. Marquette has been changing quite a bit since I moved away many years ago. I saw this first hand on a recent drive around town on a rainy afternoon. Here is a just a taste of Marquette’s evolution.
The Orphanage is being renovated into apartments.
A new hospital is being built.
The Public Works building is being moved from the new hospital site to this site in North Marquette.
A new hotel is on the old Bunny Bread site.
A new park is on Lake Shore Blvd.
A Bed and Breakfast was built along Lake Shore Blvd.
Condos are being built along Lake Shore Blvd. as was a Hampton Inn and ground has recently been broken for a multi-use facility.
This power plant will be closing.
Condos border Mattson Park.
Northern Michigan University has a new Wildcat logo and many new buildings.
