I. The Lowering of Crystal Lake,  II. The Biography of Archibald Jones

by a Humble Saunterer, Stacy Leroy Daniels

Crystal Lake Sesquicentennial Celebration!
*** 1873 to 2023 ***

In honor of the 150-year anniversary of the lowering of Crystal Lake, the fateful event that "created" the modern lake we know and love today, in 2023 we had a summer-long celebration in the Crystal Lake area of Benzie County, Michigan.

Please see the
celebration Web page for the SESQUI Commemorative Booklet, the details of what & why we are celebrating, and more!

Announcing the release of the new book "The Comedy of Crystal Lake" (2015); the unanticipated sequel to The Tragedy of Crystal Lake (1922). It's all about the 1873 lowering of Crystal Lake in Benzie County, Michigan, and a biography of Archibald Jones, the man behind the operation, and his Benzie County River Improvement Company.

Dr. Daniels describes the book as...

"Being a Summary Chronicle with Many More Sidelights, of a Tale written in Two Parts, describing a seemingly Ill-Fated Historical Event, so epochal in its nature as to have had a permanent bearing upon the development and future of Benzie County in Northwestern Lower Michigan, together with myriad viewpoints of its diverse characters and sundry locales and &c, &c."

Please see the About the Story for a short description and Writing of the Book for more details.
