"Bob Miles had love affair with Charlevoix"

Mr. Miles collected, compiled, researched, and reproduced hundreds of photographs, drawings and other materials and had them bound in seven incredible volumes which are housed at the Charlevoix Public Library.

When he decided to publish his book (the proceeds of which he gave to the Charlevoix Historical Society), he was faced with the daunting task of paring down SEVEN volumes of material to ONE! This website contains the photographs, drawings and narratives which "didn't make the cut" for the book.

The Charlevoix Historical Society reserves the rights to the material in the published book CHARLEVOIX (which is out of print), but is pleased to announce the publishing of CHARLEVOIX II, compiled and edited by David. L. Miles, Bob's son. Please visit the Charlevoix Historical Society's website for details and ordering information.

Unfortunately, while we were allowed to use a good number of pages from Volumes IV, V, and VI, there are VERY few pages in this website from Volumes I, II, III, and VII.
