Books and Maps

The Beaver Island Historical Society offers several pamphlets, books, newspaper facsimiles of Strang's "Northern Islander", and maps.  We are particularly proud of the series, "The Journal of Beaver Island History".  Started in 1976, the early volumes have been through several reprintings. Volume IV is now on the Island.  Each of them costs $12.00 at the Print Shop Museum, or $15.00 through the mail.
