THANK YOU Consumers Energy Foundation!
— Fishtown Preservation received a $25,000 grant today from the Consumers Energy Foundation. The grant will support the rehabilitation of three of Fishtown’s historic shanties, the Carlson’s Fishery, the Village Cheese Shanty and Fishtown’s oldest building, the Morris Shanty. Though the project has been in the planning stages for several years, recent high water has made implementation of the work this fall critical.

Consumers Energy’s commitment to people, the planet and Michigan’s prosperity is a driving force behind our Foundation’s support for preserving Fishtown’s cultural resources,” said Carolyn Bloodworth, secretary/treasurer of the Consumers Energy Foundation. “Fishtown is not only an economic draw for the Grand Traverse Region, it is a significant site in Michigan. We are proud to be part of a project that will ensure Fishtown’s future.”
