Michigan Postcard: Yates Cider Mill

Memories are made while cider and donuts are consumed at the historic mill.

Fall is cider mill season in southeast Michigan and one of the most popular is the historic in Rochester Hills.

Reader Nancy Perkins, who splits her time between Waterford and Florida, sent in this snapshot of the iconic spot on a beautiful fall day.

"I love all of our ," Perkins said. "Yates is one of my favorites. The nearby Clinton River and trail is also very picturesque!"

Yates was one of our favorite places for a family outing in the 60's and 70's. The cider mill didn't even need to be open to enjoy the trails and picnic grounds. Thanks for the memory.
