Pesto - Change - O! From saloon to billiard parlor, to clothing store, to bakery, to museum, this edifice built in 1868 has known many transformations. Since April Fools Day 1978 it has housed a unique collection that celebrates the magician's arts of wonder and delight. Michigan's link to magic is no illusion for nearby Colon, a center of magic manufacturing, was once home to famed magician Harry Blackstone, Sr., (1885-1965), whose memorabilia is displayed here.
