For a brief period between 1923 and 1939, The Golfmore Hotel on the Lake Michigan Shore in Michigan Shores/Grand Beach was second only to Mackinac Island’s Grand Hotel in size, appearance and amenities. Tom Suhs, who has researched the hotel and what little remains of the structure, tells its story through photographs, period postcards, newspaper ads, articles and brochures. Highlights of the Golfmore’s story include its role as a training camp for boxers George Carpentier, Tommy Gibbons and “The Cinderella Man,” James Braddock.
Presenter: Tom Suhs is author of The Golfmore Hotel: An Illustrated History.
