Buildings, Dwellings, Woody Plants, Trees, According to summertime residents of Delaware, this long winged building used to be the old mine boarding house in the days way, way back. Legend has it that while Horace Greeley didn't live here, he did eat here. The barracks like building is used during the summer when delegations from out of state come to live in it and frolic about the once well-known mining area.

Human Settlements, Buildings, Dwellings, Housing, Single Family, Woody Plants, Trees These are some of the homes in Ripley not far from the old Burt Boiler Shop. The rock piles above the house tops show where prospectors endeavored to locate the Isle Royale veins on the north side of the lake. These diggings are immediately east of the Ripley Falls and are quite shallow. Even an adit was dug. It still exists although greatly filled with debris. [Good photo of some of the dwellings in Ripley.]

Buildings - Camps

Seasons, Buildings, Dwellings, Woody Plants, Trees The Cy Wedge Jr. Camp at Otter Lake. At one time this little cabin was directly on the Otter Lake shore. It was constructed about 35 years ago by John Skoog of Hancock. He expected to make the cabin a sort of summer cottage but because of the gradual receding of the lake he lost interest in it and deeded it over to his daughter, Mrs. Cy Wedge, Jr., who, with her husband, uses it during the summer. Today, the camp is about a half mile from the lake shore. [Photo of a building with a screened in porch. The porch has a swing and several chairs. The roof appears to be of tar paper and the steps leading to the porch look like they are in need of repair.].

Manners and Customs, Recreation, Wildlife-Related Recreation, Hunting, Buildings, Dwellings, Woody Plants, Trees Hunting with home comforts. This trailer was parked not far from Alberta, near LAnse, Saturday. The five using it were not around, no doubt because they were after their quarry on an old logging road on which they parked the trailer. The occupants were indicated by the camp certificate as being Charles and Minnie Goodsell of Sheridan, and Lewis, Lyle and Elsie Palmer of Mason, both Lower Michigan towns. Several tents and trailers were parked between LAnse and Three Lakes. [A small trailer complete with curtains is parked on a muddy road. Some groceries sit on the top of the trailer.]
