The following is an account written by Warren R. Smith, long-time summer resident of Leelanau County in 1954. It was submitted to the Enterprise by his son, Alden G. Smith of Rt. 1, Lake Leelanau and was carried in several installments in the Enterprise. It is a partial history of some of the residents and resorters who came to East Leland since 1908.
