Curtisville - Glennie - Curtis Township Population: 2000() 1990() Change()
Curtisville and Glennie are located in Alcona Countyís southwest corner in Curtis Township. The township hall is located in Glennie. Both of these communities began during Michiganís lumbering boom in the early 1880ís. They continued to survive afterwards as small agricultural communities, primarily in cattle-raising. The post office in Curtisville shut down in 1955, while the post office in Glennie remains open.
Today, both communities remain small rural towns, but the area seems to be coming back, as real estate development is on the grow here - primarily due to its location to the scenic Au Sable River Valley, including Alcona Dam, just a few miles east of Curtisville.
There are also several small lakes, with over half the township included in the Huron National Forest.
For a scenic drive, try going west from Glennie on Bamfield Rd. to Curtisville, where you can view the river valley from the lookout at the top of the hill and catch the dam just a few miles further down. Or take Au Sable Rd. from the lookout to the north and enjoy the pond at Alcona Park, a popular camping and recreation spot.
