2/26/2014 12:01:00 AM Cross Village history subject of College Lunch Lecture March 7
North Central Michigan College will repeat the Luncheon Lecture about historic Cross Village on Friday, March 7 in the Library conference room on the Petoskey campus. The luncheon begins at 11:30 a.m. with the lecture starting at noon.
The lecture on February 21 sold out quickly and the weather prevented many from attending.
One of the oldest settlements in Michigan, the little village in northern Emmet County was once home to a large native community, large amounts of lumbering and fishing activity and a 2,000-acre Catholic "convent" and farm run by an autocratic and eccentric Catholic pastor. In the 1850s, its Native American population faced deportation to Kansas. Jane Cardinal from Good Hart now operates a museum that captures much of the area's colorful history and will be our tour guide.
Cost for the event is $10 and includes lunch. Reservations are required. Call 231-348-6600 to reserve your place at the table.
