Presque Isle Lodge
Newell Avery Eddy Jr. (1880 - 1940) had the Presque Isle Lodge built around 1920, when the construction of what would become US-23 opened the area around Grand Lake to tourism and recreation. The lodge, placed in the National Register of Historic Places in 2008, is an example of rustic architecture popular in Michigan in the first half of the twentieth century. During this time Michigans lumber industry became a leading manufacturer if rustic-styled, board-and-batten siding and rough hewn logs. Responding to the rapid urbanization transforming American life in the late nineteenth century, and associated with healthy living, wilderness and leisure activities, the rustic style was regularly employed by the National Park Service.
