Grand Traverse

Part of an area originally known as Omeena was organized as Grand Traverse County by Public Act 141 of 1851, with Boardman’s Mills designated as the county seat. Today the County is home to the world-famous Interlochen Center of the Arts, and the area is considered the Cherry Capital of the World.
