Grosse Ile is a little island at the mouth of Lake Erie that has a rich history dating back many centuries. Read along as a grandfather shows his two grandchildren the contents of a long-ago buried treasure chest and tell them stories from the past.
This book was created by the Grosse Ile Historical Society to share some of the rich history of our island home with people of all ages. The various events and people in our book fit together like jigsaw puzzle pieces to tell the story of Grosse Ile's amazing history.
