Owosso, Michigan is a city in Shiawassee County with a population of just over 15,000 people. Owosso was named after Chief Wasso, who was a leader of the Ojibwa tribe in the Shiawassee area. One of Owosso’s most famous residents was James Oliver Curwood.
As a boy growing up in Owosso, James had a love of nature, books and writing. James Curwood became a best-selling author of 33 adventure novels of which more than 20 where made into movies, including one of the most famous, The Bear. A popular tourist attraction and museum, The Curwood Castle, was originally built by Curwood and used as his writing studio. Upon Curwood’s death in 1927, the beautiful replica of a Norman chateau was willed to the city. The castle is now a museum people can visit which contains antiques, Curwood books, photos, and movie posters as well as memorabilia from his life. Curwood was an avid hunter and conservationist, appointed to the Michigan Conservation Commission, as well as one of America’s foremost authors. The castle is located on the banks of the Shiawassee River and is open to the public, 1-5 p.m. daily except Monday. Anyone traveling to Owosso should plan to stop and learn more about the history of the area.
