Maggie and Margaret McManus, 1954

In their June 23, 2016 edition, the Betsie Current published my story about the new Elberta Mercantile Co. and the history of its location, the Gilmore Township Library building at 704 Frankfort Avenue. If you missed the paper copy, you can read the story, “Everything Old Is New Again,” online here. While doing research for this story, Andrew Bolander, Jeanne Edwards, and I (but mostly Andy and Jeanne) dug up a lot of really great historical photographs. We thought we’d share them here in a slideshow. —Emily Votruba
