North Manitou Island: History of Cottage Row

What a night! Stacie presented on the history of Cottage Row on North Manitou Island recently at the Benzie Area Historical Society’s lecture series. There was a live audience of more than 50, and it was also broadcast on Zoom to around a dozen more.
We met a lot of great people, including many who had personal connections and experiences on the island. We are looking forward to continuing those conversations! There is always more to learn.
Thank you to the Benzie Area Historical Society and Museum for the invitation to speak.
