Description

Stop by the Charlevoix Chamber of Commerce for a brochure highlighting the "mushroom houses" and public buildings created by architect Earl Young.  Designed to fit into the landscape, Young's buildings used various types of stone in their construction.  Flowing lines and cedar shake roofs make many of these houses appear almost gnome-like.  A fun self-guided tour even if you're not an architecture aficionado.



Read about Stafford's Weathervane Restaurant, one of Earl Young's designs, here.



You can also watch a Earl Young video tour from MyNorth.com.



Photographer Mike Barton has captured a number of these unique Earl Young designed homes in photos. Take a look!
