The Area Leelanau County was officially established in 1863 with Northport as the County Seat until 1882, when it was transferred to Leland. The lighthouse, at the peninsula’s northernmost point, (currently a museum open in the summer), was first constructed in 1858 to guide freighters through the Manitou Passage, and marks the entrance to the Grand Traverse Bay. Leelanau County’s scenery is hard to beat: from the Sleeping Bear Dunes just north of Empire, to inland Lake Leelanau, to the calm waters of Omena and Suttons Bays, there is plenty to do. Not to mention the cherry orchards, or taking the summer ferry from Leland to North Manitou Island. Leelanau County is truly a must-see for anyone who has an interest in Michigan, no matter what season of the year. Glen Arbor Township is situated within the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Shoreline. Its main community is Glen Arbor, centered between Glen Lake and Sleeping Bear Bay. This area was originally settled by John LaRue, John Fisher, and John Dorsey around 1854. It was given its name after Mrs. Fisher observed a cluster of wild grapes in the tree tops and remarked that it was a “glen arbor” created by nature. Today, Glen Arbor remains a popular tourist spot adjacent to Glen Lake and the Sleeping Bear Dunes, with several specialty shops, resorts and restaurants. Company: Glen Lodge 1701CA66
