I am Tynan Ford, a senior computer science major at Michigan State University. This site was created as a project in my History of Michigan class, in which we had to pick a town in Michigan and write about its history. I decided to research the history of Cross Village, as I love getting away and going Up North, to fish, relax, hang out on the beach, and spend time with family and friends. I am fortunate to have spent parts of my last five summers in Cross Village, and have especially enjoyed the town's laid back and quiet atmosphere.
A special thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Francis at the L'Arbre Croche Museum, and Ms. Jane Cardinal for assisting with my research on Cross Village.
