There’s No House In The World Like This One In Michigan
For the most part, Michigan architecture is classic in design, and we’ve got a number of notable people in our state’s history to thank for thank. There’s Frank Lloyd Wright, Albert Khan, and others who came to define the style which our homes and structures display to the present day.
And then there’s the Pickle Barrel House in downtown Grand Marais. The whimsical, two-story cabin was built in 1926 for then-famous cartoonist William Donahey, known for authoring the Teenie Weenies syndicated cartoon strip. Have a look.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
Pretty neat piece of history, huh? Tell us, have you ever visited the Pickle Barrel House? What was it like? We wanna hear about it!
