Mission + Vision

Colon Michigan IS The Magic Capital of The World!


     Very few people in Michigan know it, but the town of Colon, down near the Indiana border, has become famous all over the world as the "Home of Hocus Pocus" where equipment and articles for magicians are manufactured for sale all over the universe, to amateur and professional magicians. For the past 90 years magic has been synonomous with Colon.
     We are proud to finally tell the complete story of Colon through this new website. Not only will you read stories about magic and magicians who have visited but you will also be introduced to the folks who first settled here and how their ideas and vision helped develop this unique village.

   Within these pages you will see rare photographs and read stories told through the eyes of local residents. We take you a step back in time but also take a look into the future of this thriving community.

      As a 7 year old kid I fell in love with this village and that love affair continues to this day.  Colon residents boast that when you visit you most certainly will return! We couldn't agree more :)
