Mark Farner loves this area

Rock musician Mark Farner, a Flint native, has long been a fan of the U.P., and the McMillan and Curtis areas in general. “I first started coming when my friend bought a bar up there,” Farner said. “It was Mick’s Tally Ho in Curtis – their names are Bob and Betty McCormick… We had 320 acres north of McMillan, just past the Tahquamenon up in the hills there. We used to come to the cabin and deer hunt, upland bird hunt, and hunt partridge and rabbits.”
