Aux Becs Scies: Frankfort Harbor 1860-1910
by Andrew Bolander
The story of the early Frankfort Harbor is about lumber and the improvements made to facilitate the sale of harvested timber from the Betsie River Watershed. The stillness of today’s Betsie Bay contrasts with its noisy history – the din of sawmills, the yells of generations of working men and the whistles of car ferries. The harbor was a catalyst for the development of Benzie County was a whole.
