Small but adds to the sense of place here. We went to see the Harsha maps. Toured a delightful old kitchen that reminded me of my grandmother’s and pulling taffy, making noodles, spending time in her company. Getting ready for installation of photography show that looks substantial;) Free easy parking too. Friendly curator wearing every hat- thank you for your service!

My husband and I had a wonderful visit to the Charlevoix Museum. It was full of interesting history of the area. The curator, Trevor D., was very professional and knowledgeable, and met with us to help find information about my husband, Tom's, great grandfather, E. H. Green. He was the first lawyer from Traverse City north to the Straits of Mackinac and resided in Charlevoix. Trevor informed us there is a Green street named after him and the E.H. Green building (1885)still standing on Bridge Street. He had researched our great grandfather and had much information about his life and time in Charlevoix. Thanks again Trevor for a truly memorable experience, one not forgotten and to be shared with our family and friends back in Texas. All our Best! Tom and Mary Green

A great local museum that features exhibits on Irene Harsha-Young a local artist and Earl Young her husband who was a local realtor/architect known for his mushroom house designs and Boulder Park. There is also a great exhibit on local photographers over the past 150 years. If you are in town, it is worth a visit.

Great way to get your bearings on Charlevoix's past and present. Current exhibit "The Working World" provides fascinating insight into the people, businesses, and places that put Charlevoix on the map. We went on consecutive days to soak it all in. Limited hours, so consider calling ahead.
