Original “Tiny Homes” On Tour in Empire, Michigan
AT INDIGO BLUFFS RESORT – SEPTEMBER 16, 2017

The open house is FREE.
Indigo Bluffs Resort is located 3 miles east of Empire on M-72
The Empire gathering represents a return to the club’s Northern Michigan roots. Founded in 1919 in Florida, winter gatherings were held there while summer gatherings were regularly held in Michigan in Traverse City (where the Civic Center is now), and occasionally Manistee (Orchard Beach State Park.)
Approximately 40 vintage trailers and coaches ranging in age from the 1930’s to the 1980’s can be toured during this one-day event. It’s well worth the drive to see these “original tiny homes” and meet the people who have lovingly restored them to their former glory. But be forewarned, you may leave this event with a firm urge to downsize to your own stylish vintage camper!
