January

Zoom Program: Schooners and Palatial Yachts

Thursday, January 6 at 7:00pm

This program by Charlevoix Historical Society curator David L. Miles, examines the stories of the most prominent schooners and many prominent palatial yachts that came to Charlevoix’s harbor, their backstories, construction, owners, and for some of the yachts, their ultimate fates caused by the nation’s entry into World War II.

This Zoom program is being given through North Central Michigan College’s Lifelong Learning Club. Please visit there website for free registration. https://www.ncmclifelonglearning.com/event-4574083


February

Zoom Program: The Coming of the Railroad (& How it Transformed Charlevoix)

Wednesday, February 2 at 7:00pm

Charlevoix was the last of the principal municipalities of northwest lower Michigan to receive a railroad. It sat so close to the Lake Michigan maritime lanes that many inhabitants thought one was unnecessary. But months-long winters with an ice-packed Lake Michigan sometimes threatened Charlevoix’s survival, so gradually sentiment began to shift. The announcement that a railroad would finally arrive in the early 1890s was met with not a little skepticism, but mainly overwhelming joy and relief. Find out more about Charlevoix’s Railroad history through this Zoom program presented by Charlevoix Historical Society Curator David L. Miles.
