Gateways to Grand Traverse Past, by Richard Fidler
In some places history lurks just under the surface. An old factory whispers a story about it workers a hundred years ago. An ancient oak with its trunk curiously bent suggests times before white settlement. A gas station from the nineteen twenties reminds us of the first automobiles. A beacon atop a hotel signals to present-day boats upon the Bay as well as to early airplanes searching for a place to land. An artesian well still flows, one hundred and forty years after it was first drilled.
GATEWAYS TO GRAND TRAVERSE PAST identifies these magical places and tells the stories connected with them. Watch out! After reading this book the very ground you walk becomes living history. You will need to tread carefully as you pass from the present to the past and back again.
