REMAINS: Unknown; access was not possible.
Nonesuch was first settled in 1866, and its post office opened in 1876. It was never very large (fewer than 50), its economy was based on timber and mining (but it did have a school and stores). The post office closed in 1887. It would appear the State of Michigan bought the townsite; it is down a very rough road, and access was not permitted in 1995. Submitted by: Kurt Wenner
