A Little History

In the latter half of the 19th century, wood harvested from the region was hauled to saw mills in Traverse City to produce lumber that was shipped to ports around the Great Lakes. As logs were run through the mills, scrap or slab-boards were created and workers used them to construct their homes in the areas south and west of Grand Traverse Bay. Thus Slabtown was created.
