Discover Beaver Island: The Voices of the Past

Avatar
By CMU Honors
The Voices of the Past is a series of audio dramas that characterize the rich and plentiful history of a small northern Michigan community - Beaver Island, MI.

These stories are based on true and factual research conducted by Central Michigan University Honors students during a 2018 Summer class on the Island. All nine students (and professor) came together in one effort to produce this piece of work.
The Conclusion
Thank you for listening. If you liked what you heard, contact Professor Will Andersen with any questions, concerns, or comments: ander1ww@cmich.edu. Thank you to the entire Beaver Island community for allowing us to tell your stories and become a part of the local life. We can't tell you how much it means to us.
