    Traverse City, MI 49684
    +1 231 947 0692 (Tourist Information)
    Located in Traverse City, which is known for its fair share of roadside attractions, is one of strangest attractions in Michigan. The grave site of Colantha the cow, is often sought by tourists and locals alike, who stop by to commemorate the life and achievement of the Champion Cow. Fondly remembered as Colantha Walker who was born and raised in the Northern Michigan Asylum, a self-sufficient mental health facility of the 1800s, she was claimed a champion in 1926. She produced a whopping 2746 gallons (10395 liters) of milk that year, while the average cow in Michigan would produce just about 469 gallons (1777 liters) of milk annually. Traverse City still remembers Colantha who has inspired the annual dairy festival in city called the Traverse Colantha Walker Dairy Festival held every at what used to be the mental asylum's grounds, which is also the final resting place of the legendary cow.
