Did You Know Howell Was Once Home To A Condensed Milk Factory

If you're from the lower Michigan area, you're probably familiar with Howell. A Michigan city smushed between Brighton and Fowlerville, and a wonderful place to drive through, and also do some shopping in today's world.

If you were to look back a good hundred years ago though, you would've seen a little bit of a different set-up.

In fact, at one point in the history of Howell, Michigan, there was a condensed milk factory. This was a game changer for the city, as they used to have to get most of their milk from Lansing.
