On November 14, 1856, John and Harriet Miller landed in what would be later named Boyne City. The community’s historic roots run deep and its appreciation for its colorful past is treasured and celebrated. For a trip through the community’s past a visit to the Boyne City Historical Museum is a must. You will get a feel what it was like for the Millers, how industry along the lakeshore took hold, and how the community has transitioned into what it is today.
