Map of Michigan showing the Toledo, Ann Arbor & North Michigan Railway and connecting lines.

This railroad route took twenty years to complete its line from Toledo, Ohio to Elberta on the eastern shore of Lake Michigan. Before completion the line was known by several different names, usually including Toledo, Ann Arbor and some other destination. Although much Michigan interior settlement was occurring in the 1870's because of the access of railroads, an economic stranglehold was cast upon the whole railroad industry, as the "Panic of 1873" stalled the industry's growth until well into the 1880's.

This map published in 1886 by G.W. & C.B. Colton & Co. shows drainage, cities and towns, townships counties. Railroad lines are indicated in red.
