Comments:

Killmaster is a tiny unincorporated community at 44°37’54″N 83°27’05″W. Originally a lumbering town, little remains other than a cluster of several houses at Mill and Fourth and Fifth streets. It was named after lumberman John H. Killmaster who operated a local sawmill (on “Sawmill” Street which exists today). On December 15, 1885, he became the first postmaster, and the post office remained in operation until February 28, 1911.
