Welcome

to Journey to the Past, I'm Brenda (Glover) Leyndyke and I believe researching your family history is a fascinating journey.

Sharing my Love of Point Betsie

03 August 2011

My husband and I joined my brother and his family along with my parents last month for a week long vacation near Crystal Lake, Michigan.  We rented a house in Beulah, Michigan and had a great vacation. 


The highlight of the vacation was meeting my 13 month old niece for the first time and getting to share Point Betsie with her.  Although she doesn't understand the family history involved with it, I still enjoyed taking her there and getting pictures.

My great grandfather, Frank H. Glover, was an assistant lighthouse keeper at Point Betsie.  The assistant lighthouse keeper's quarters were on the second floor of the lighthouse.  Point Betsie is open for tours on Fridays and Saturdays during the summer months.  The fully restored building is filled with historic images of the lighthouse.  You can even rent the second floor rooms and stay at the lighthouse.

I enjoyed getting a picture of three generations of Glover's at the lighthouse.  I am not sure that my family shares my enthusiasm for family history, but I enjoyed sharing it with them on this trip.
