The now defunct Flint and Pere Marquette Railroad operated in Michigan between 1857 and 1899. It was one of the three companies which merged to become the Pere Marquette Railway. The F&PM was chartered on January 22, 1857 as the Flint and Pere Marquette Railway. The early promoters of the road were George M. Dewey and E.H. Hazelton of Flint. Dewey served as the first president of the F&PM. In 1860 Service began on January 20, 1862, on the 26.1-mile section from East Saginaw south to Mount Morris. In December 1864 the F&PM gained access to Detroit via trackage rights over the Flint and Holly Railroad and the Detroit and Milwaukee Railroad. Construction westward from Saginaw started in 1866 with the first section of 20 miles to Midland, opened December 1, 1867. On September 2, 1868, the F&PM was consolidated with the Flint and Holly Railroad. The merger brought into the F&PM the Crapo family - Henry H. Crapo, Governor of Michigan in 1865-69, and his son, William W. Crapo, later president of the F&PM. The railroad continued on with land grants through the forests of central Michigan. It was completed to Clare, 24.4 miles, west of Averill, in November 1870; another 15.6 miles) was finished in March 1871. On June 4, 1872, the F&PM was consolidated with the Holly, Wayne and Monroe Railroad (opened for service the same day); the Bay City and East Saginaw.
