Unless you want to read “news” that summer brings more workers to our area, there’s precious little to read about in today’s news. Since Northport is having their big Harbor Days celebration this weekend and next week, how about a look at Northport web sites?
The Leelanau Museum has a calendar called “The Way We Were” that has brief histories of Leelanau villages. Here’s the history of Northport.
Northport’s biggest historical attraction is the Grand Traverse Lighthouse, located at the tip of the Leelanau Peninsula. It’s a great museum that gives you a look at what it was like to live and work in a lighthouse in the late 1800s along the Great Lakes. You may also wish to check out this article about the Grand Traverse Light featuring an interview with Doug McCormick and Bette McCormick Olli.
One organization that we would like to pay special attention to is the Northport Community Arts Center. They bring regionally and nationally known performers of all kinds to town on a regular basis, so you’ll want to keep an eye on them.
