This page is obviously under construction.

However, if you look at the Trout Creek Centennial History Book, you'll see that I've done lots of work...just not on anything other than it.

The History Book was a class project I did. I scanned in the entire book and put in the html coding. I'm quite proud of my work.

The reason I chose this book was because my father grew up in Trout Creek, MI (the Upper Peninsula - the part lots of people think is really Wisconsin -shame on you!- but isn't). Eventually I'll get a map on the page. Anyway, just like lots of other people's dads, mine told us horror stories of walking to school through miles of snow, piled higher than telephone poles. He also told of of hunting in the woods and his dog getting rabies and having to be shot.

Anyway, we went to the Trout Creek Centennial in 1988 and I had a great time. I loved the people. I loved the area. (Never want to live there; there was a frost in July when we were there. Brr.) I've slowly over the years tried to find histories of the region, there just isn't very much. So as a memento of my trip and as a hopefully lasting piece of history, I decided to put this book for all to see.

I'd like to thank Mrs. Eleanor Bessen for being the go between between me and the town board and getting me permission to put the Centennial Book on the World Wide Web. I also want to thank Emmanuel Voigt, the Chairman of the Interior Township Civic Improvement Committee, for helping me to find Mrs. Bessen.
