Plaque at 108 Park

The City of Charlevoix has purchased and installed a bronze plaque describing the house that once stood at 108 Park Avenue.  The plaque sits atop a large stone at the base of a curved bench.  It is in front of the parking lot that now occupies the site.  CCHPS provided the “history lesson” on the plaque.  Click the pic to read it.

The 140-year-old home of Lennie Beers Ingalls Campbell was burned to the ground on the morning of March 24, 2010.  The fourth-oldest structure in Charlevoix, located along the pioneer “Main Street,” now Park Avenue, will become a parking lot.  The picture to the left shows the fire crew and the crew filming “Frontier Boys” during one of the takes of the Molotov Cocktail scene.  Filming went on most of the night, and culminated in the 5:30 am burn-down, which was so hot it melted some of the siding on a nearby garage. CCHPS was able to salvage many items from the house prior to the burn and between scenes, and will offer them to Michigan historical societies so that they can be used in preservation projects and museum displays.
