Charlevoix Hotels.  presented by Charlevoix Historical Society curator, David Miles
Tuesday, March 2 @ 6:30pm, via Zoom.

Since the first small hotel appeared here in 1867, Charlevoix’s reputation as a place to come for both business and pleasure began to spread around the state, then the country, and now the world.    The town soon gained a reputation as one of the premier resort destinations of America’s Midwest, reachable first by boat, then train, then automobile.  This program traces the rise of the grande dame hotels, some of the smaller ones, some famous names who stayed in them, and how the hotel/motel sector of the economy transformed into what it is today.

Schooners and Palatial Yachts.  presented by Charlevoix Historical Society curator, David Miles
Tuesday, March 23 @ 6:30pm, via Zoom

Charlevoix’s Round Lake was once packed full of two- and three-masted schooners for decades after the channels were cut in 1869 and the economy of this region exploded.  They were the main link in the commercial maritime chain that connected Charlevoix to the rest of the state and country.   Equally picturesque, beginning in the late 19th century, were the huge palatial yachts that once graced our harbor as our reputation as a summer mecca grew, until World War II caught up most of them for conversion to the war effort and they disappeared from the scene, never to return again.
