1. This is Spikehorn.
Harrison, Michigan’s most colorful character was John “Spikehorn” Meyers, known to thousands of Michigan residents simply as Spikehorn.
Spikehorn was a showman, naturalist, politician, coal miner, tile manufacturer, furniture builder, inventor, realtor, bear hunter, lumberjack, and above all, individualist.
4. This was his Bear & Deer Park.
According to neighbors, Spikehorn’s interest in the woods and buckskins developed around 1930 when he opened his Bear and Deer Park.
Spikehorn and his friend, Red Eagle, dressed in buckskins for tourists and treated them to tales of their adventures in the woods.
His enemies were the Conservation Officers, as indicated by the sign in front of his business: “Feed Conservation Officers to the Bear.”
