Before the Bridge
A History and Directory of St. Ignace and nearby localities. Published by the Kiwanis Club of St. Ignace, 1957. The long, rich history of this area cannot by any means be related in detail in this one volume, which is, we hope, only the first step in assembling and preserving local history and family records. From the storehouse of information already assembled, and from the memories of some who will be stimulated, plus other facts which are sure to come to light as time passes, it is probable that one or more supplemental issues will be printed in the future.
The reprint of Before the Bridge is available in soft cover at the Chamber office for $20.00 ($25 with shipping and handling).
