Picture perfect: the 2016 upper peninsula history conference.
History buffs were sure to find something that piqued their interest at the 67th annual Upper Peninsula History Conference that took place in Munising June 23 to 26.
The conference's sold-out tours gave attendees an opportunity to explore the wonderful area of Munising on Friday afternoon. An evening pasty party at the Alger County Historical Society's Heritage Center wrapped up the evening.
Breakout sessions covered a range of interesting topics. Favorite sessions included "Miners Died and Widows Cried: Death in the Iron Mines," "From Timber to Tables: Munising Woodenware," and "A Superior Story: Munising's History."
A big thank you goes out to the Alger County Historical Society and Munising Public Schools for serving as conference hosts. Next year's conference will be in Iron River. Go to hsmichigan.org for details.
