Renovation of historic Mill Lake Camp near Chelsea set for early October
Lisa Carolin | For AnnArbor.com
The camp was a 1936 Works Progress Administration project and offered city children a chance to experience living outdoors, but in 2000 the camp was no longer usable and the Department of Natural Resources did not have the funds for repairs.
Tourism Cares for Michigan, an organization that aims to preserve tourist locations for future generations, will recruit 200 volunteers from professional groups to begin gutting old cabins, staining the exteriors and trimming overgrown foliage in early October, the newspaper reported.
The DNR will install new plumbing, electrical systems, interior walls and furnishings after the initial renovations are complete, according to the article.
