Step back in time to an era when horses outnumbered cars as the main form of transportation, logging was the main industry, and every yard had an outhouse! Read about the first permanent settlers in Boyne City, John and Harriet Miller, the father of Boyne City, George Beardsley, and other prominent families like the Morgans and the Whites (W.H. White Lumber Co.). Click below to see the Miller’s “Dream Cabin.”
We have great collection of historical photos. Through the years the museum has acquired photos of the old logging camps, BCG&A Railroad, W.H. White Lumber Mills, and much more.
This kitchen area displays an old woodburning cook stove, utensils, cookware and a table setting of dishes. Complete with the spice canisters, recipes books, and a butter churn, this kitchen might be typical of one used by the early settlers of Boyne City. Notice the attention to detail in the dresses, quilts, material and wallpaper samples from the late 1800′s.
Museum is closed during the construction of the new city hall facility.
