The People of North Manitou Island
As you hike the island, you will see old buildings dating from the logging and farming days. MANY OF THESE ARE VERY DECREPIT AND DANGEROUS TO ENTER. PLEASE DO NOT ENTER THEM. Open fields, old orchards, stumps and weed-covered two-track roads speak of bygone times. A thorough research report describing the history and development of North Manitou Island - Tending a Comfortable Wilderness - is available for viewing online and downloading.
