What’s Happening in Northern Michigan: Crystal Clipper Chairlift, Old US 27 Motor Tour, Historical Exhibits

There’s plenty to do in our area as we soak in the last month of summer.

Courtney Sheffer from the West Michigan Tourist Association has more on What’s Happening in Northern Michigan.

Harbor Springs Area Historical Society New Exhibits

The Harbor Springs Area Historical Society has two new exhibits for you to explore.

Step back in time at their history museum to an era of steam whistles and fluttering flags at their “Don’t Miss The Boat” exhibit.

The exhibit highlights the historic ferries of Little Traverse Bay and features original watercolors and giclees by a local artist.

They also have a “History Natters” multimedia exhibit on display at the Shay Hexagon House featuring community art.

Admission is by donation.
