About 9 miles long and 2 miles wide, Crystal Lake has been a recreational center in northwest Michigan for over 100 years.  However, resorts and vacations were not the intention of Benzonia's first settlers, who arrived to found a religious colony and college.  When Crystal Lake was accidentally lowered in 1873, cottages, camps, and resorts sprang up along with the beaches.  Using archival photographs from the Benzie Area Historical Museum, Crystal Lake tells the distinctive story of the lake's past, its towns, resorts, people, and businesses.
