Summer 2011

It is hard to believe that summer is over already!

Fishtown, Leland

The temperatures have turned cold, and the rain has become the biting cold precursor of winter.  However, since this is Michigan, and we are all aware of just how many wonderful places and things there are to do here, the changing weather doesn’t mean that travel will stop over the next few months.  Fall colors are just around the corner, and then there is skiing season!

This summer a Michigan location had the honor of being recognized for its natural beauty.  Sleeping Bear Dunes was voted the number one most beautiful place in American by ABC’s Good Morning America. As preservationists, we know that in addition to the natural beauty of our home state, there are a tremendous number of buildings, structures, sites, and places that are historically significant too.  Was one of these treasures a destination for your summer travels?

Thanks to Amanda Davis, former MHPN Board Member and professional photographer (watch for her website coming soon under the name Amanda D. Davis Photography – or better yet, bid on one of her photos at the 17th Annual MHPN Fall Benefit on October 14th) we have some of those great images of the cultural places that make Michigan unlike any other in the county.

Do you know of some great places in Michigan?  We always welcome your images of the historic places that make Michigan special to you.  And, please watch for MHPN’s new recognition program – Michigan Places Matter!  coming soon.
