New from Arcadia Publishing and local author M. Vonciel LeDuc is Manistique in the popular Images of America series, featuring over 200 vintage images.
Until the early 1900s, Manistique was a boomtown in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan with sawmills, subsidiary companies, and supporting merchants and services. As time went along in the last century, Manistique retained a few industries, but its primary focus has become serving as a mecca for tourism.
