Restful Resorts

Nov 16, 2023 - Nov 16, 2023
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Location: ZOOM

Everything changed for the small village of Little Traverse after 1875—in fact, the three decades between 1870 and 1900 were full of explosive change that forever defined our town. Almost overnight Little Traverse, called Harbor Springs after 1881, transformed from a primarily Odawa village and up-and-coming logging town into a tourist and resort destination, flooding the area with thousands of new residents. The communities lost and created during this pivotal era in our history are the subject of this history talk and the complementary exhibit of the same name.

Beth Wemigwase, curator of the "Restful Resorts" exhibit, will present this deep dive into the era that included the founding of the resorts in northern Michigan onlina via ZOOM on Thursday, November 16.
