Chestonia 45°03′37″N 85°04′39″W / 45.06028°N 85.0775°W / 45.06028; -85.0775 was a town that once stood near the present-day junction of M-66 and East Old State road. The town was founded when the Detroit and Charlevoix railroad built a station at the town site. A post office was built near the depot and continued to operate until the 1960s. Today, Chestonia is but a ghost of its former self. No structures from the original town still stand, and the railroad grade is barely noticeable through the overgrowth of trees and weeds.
