My name is Talia and I have been working as an archivist and collections manager at the Harbor Springs Area Historical Society since June. I grew up in Harbor Springs but I have never been so aware of the history of the town as I have been going through the archives. There are so many great things here on a large array of subjects that I can’t wait to show them all to the town!
Recently, in honor of the upcoming presidential election in November, I gathered together interesting items from the archive on the subject of older elections in Harbor Springs and put them on a temporary display on the second floor. Items include an instructional ballot from the 1900 election with vote tallies for each candidate and the Republican Caucus poster pictured as well as other items from Harbor Springs election history. Please come to the museum and view these fascinating pieces from the archive!
Our Museum hours are Friday and Saturday 11:00 am to 3:00 pm and our Office hours are Tuesday through Friday 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
