The lost city of Singapore #PR

Singapore was founded in 1836 and was a bustling port town until 1875 when it was buried under rolling layers of sand. The bustling town by the sea no longer exists except in the memories passed down generationally and in what little books and artefacts that survived its demise. Hold on a minute, what's going on here? This history is all wrong. Singapore was founded in 1299 by Sang Nila Utama and 'rediscovered' in 1819 by Sir Stamford Raffles, not 1836. Also, we certainly have not been wiped off the world map. This is not a pitch for an alternate history novel though. Interestingly, it is all true. Singapore was founded in 1836 and it is now a ghost town. Yet, it is not the Singapore of Southeast Asia. No, this version of Singapore once belonged to the American state of Michigan.
