​The Comedy of Crystal Lake by Stacy Leroy Daniels

49.95

The "Tragedy"/"Comedy" is a well-known story of the lowering of Crystal Lake in Benzie County Michigan.
Archibald Jones founded the Benzie County River Improvement Company in 1873 intending to improve water-lots on Crystal Lake, remove obstructions and construct slack-water canals between Crystal Lake and Lake Michigan, and build a steamboat to facilitate shipping of settlers and goods to and from the interior of Benzie County to the nearby port of Frankfort.  The dramatic lowering of a very large inland lake by 20 feet and the creation of a 21-mile perimeter of sandy beach insured the future of Crystal Lake as a prime recreational area.
