Michigan Ghost Towns
6:00 pm, Tuesday, October 7

Hundreds of 'ghost towns' dot Michigan's landscape throughout both the Lower and Upper Peninsulas. Some even still appear on state highway maps. Originally centered in logging, farming, and mining areas, these towns often faded into history when the natural resources were depleted. Only a handful remain standing, silent and abandoned, as a reminder of what once was. Settle in for an historic tour through Michigan’s past as you visit the ghost towns of the Great Lakes State. Presented by Dianna Stampfler of Promote Michigan. (http://www.promotemichigan.com/index.html).

DIANNA STAMPFLER has been referred to as one of the most motivated, energetic and passionate leaders in Michigan’s tourism industry, with nearly 25 years of marketing, public relations and media relations experience.
She launched Promote Michigan in August, 2004 and has successfully established herself as an independent marketing representative for an impressive list of clients including Traverse Tall Ship Company, The Homestead Resort, ShowSpan Inc.
