Tending A Comfortable Wilderness

A History of Agricultural Landscapes on North Manitou Island, Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, Michigan.

This project builds upon three previous studies of historic agriculture at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. These have focused on: (1) an overview of the agricultural and settlement history of the two-county Lakeshore region; (2) an assessment of the agricultural landscapes and cultural resources at Port Oneida, an important part of the lakeshore's mainland unit; and (3) an assessment of agricultural and cultural resources on South Manitou Island. This report examines agricultural and cultural resources on North Manitou Island.

Professionally compiled for the National Park Service by experts from the University of Wisconsin at Madison's Department of Landscape Architecture.
