The Looking Glass River has played a part in the history of mid-Michigan since the days when the frontier was marked by U.S. 12 many miles to the south of Wacousta. This small hometown community on the banks of the Looking Glass River is still vibrant and is the home of the Summer Celebration that takes place the first weekend in June every year.
Today there is more going on here than meets the eye. For years locals and visitors alike have enjoyed the canoe trips on the river, Clayworks is a local potters guild, the Friday fish fries have been a favorite for half a century and there are a number of nearby farm markets for fresh produce.
