From the Archive: The Community House Project moves forward - but in a new location.
(January 1999 Post)

   In the past half year the Preservation Association has made remarkable strides in their project to bring a Community House to Beaver Island. Disappointed but not depressed over the possibility of having to find a new site because of the parking problem, Marilyn Clark and the Board continue to make progress.  Recent donations totalling $57,950 have brought them nearly to the half-way point in qualifying for an offered "matching challenge grant" of $150,000.

Work on PABI's Community House's facade begins! 
(July 1998 Story)

     On June 19th, expert scaffold erector Red Rowley, industrious jack-of-all-trades Art Johnson, and others began preparing the facade of the former Dockside Market.  This ambitious project appears to be moving forward, thanks to the efforts of a dedicated portion of the Beaver Island community.


The Preservation Association of Beaver Island (PABI) has a website of their own at

Also pictures of the demolition of the former Dockside Market are archived.
