Harbor Springs

The Ottawa village here was built on an eminence, near a large crooked tree, under which they held their councils, and where the mission established by the Jesuits in 1742 took its name L'Arbre Croche, or the crooked tree. In 1827, Reverend Pierre DeJean moved the mission to and built a log church at adjacent Little Traverse.  French voyageurs had found two deep indentations on Michigan's west coast; the smaller one they called La Petite Traverse, or the little crossing.  In 1853, Richard Cooper opened a general store for Captain Kirtland and began the modern development of the village. Given a post office as Little Traverse on March 27, 1862, renamed Harbor Springs on March 71, 1881.  The village was sometimes called Bayfield. Incorporated as the village of Harbor Springs in 1881 and as a city in 18932. Named from its natural harbor and the many springs in the area.  For generations, visitors have been coming to Harbor Springs to enjoy the nautical flavor of the area.  Home to the deepest natural harbor in the Great Lakes, Harbor Springs is a haven for boaters.  This northern Michigan town has attracted and maintained an upscale, close-knit community that includes family names like Gamble, Ford, Upjohn and Offield. Several championship courses make for a terrific vacation for golfers and acres of conservancy lands offer hours of hiking, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.  Charming is a word most definitely associated with the downtown area that boasts boutique shopping, varied dining, marinas and beaches.
