Join the Marquette Regional History Center for an afternoon visiting the Stone House on Ives Lake, behind the gates of the Huron Mountain Club.  Ives Lake, a glacial lake, is nestled between Mount Ives and the Breakfast Roll.  The lake was named after William Ives, a surveyor with the 1840’s Burt survey party.  John Case, great grandson of John M. Longyear, will give a tour of the grounds and share the family history of the Stone House, one of Longyear’s summer homes.  A hike up to Breakfast Roll to see spectacular views is another option of the day.  This relaxing opportunity includes delicious hors d’oeuvres and wine as you sit on the screened in porch that hangs over the clear water of Ives Lake below.  

Up for auction will be an afternoon or evening with John and Patricia Case at their cabin, Minong, also on Ives Lake, across from the Stone House.  You’ll see one of a kind pieces of furniture and artwork that once furnished the Stone House, hear more stories and family history and will enjoy the Case’s generous hospitality.  This is an opportunity you won’t forget!
