HISTORY

Iron Fish Distillery Tour

Iron Fish Distillery Tour

The Iron Fish Distillery Tours are a bargain at $10 a person. Not only do you get a history lesson, a demonstration of their soil-to-spirit process, and a guided tasting of their fine spirits but also a motivational experience.  

Betty’s Flatware Jewelry Project

Betty’s Flatware Jewelry Project

Betty’s Flatware Jewelry Project is the story of my mother’s wish to make keepsakes from the silverware set she received when she was married in 1947 and Max Ruggirrello, the artist who made her wish come true.

Little Sable Point Lighthouse in Mears Michigan

Little Sable Point Lighthouse in Mears Michigan

Standing tall on Lake Michigan’s shore is Little Sable Point Lighthouse and it is a beauty. We caught the lighthouse bug last summer during our romp about Michigan. It is highly contagious. After you tour one, you’ll find yourself scanning the beach for the familiar beacon.  

Quincy Mine Tour in Hancock Michigan

Quincy Mine Tour in Hancock Michigan

Just north of Hancock, Michigan in the heart of the Keweenaw Peninsula is the Quincy Mine. It’s been closed over 70 years, but tours are available. During our 2017 Michigan Tour, Chuck convinced me it was time to slay my fears and journey nearly one mile into the side of a hill and explore a bit of history.

Pioneer Day at the Waterloo Farm Museum

Pioneer Day at the Waterloo Farm Museum

For 50 years, the Waterloo Area Historical Society has celebrated “Michigan Farm Life” on Pioneer Day at the Waterloo Farm Museum. It is a slice of 19th century farm Americana. Think an intimate Henry Ford Museum, but way better.
