In her presentation, “The Park Place Hotel: The History of a Downtown Icon,” Peg will tell the fascinating story of one of Traverse City’s oldest businesses. Discover how the Park Place has survived the Great Depression, bankruptcy, and growing competition to maintain its place at the center of all that is Traverse City.

Peg has a Masters Degree in American History with a Specialty in Archives from the College of William and Mary in Virginia. She has lived in Traverse City for more than 30 years, raised three sons, and held positions at several area local history organizations. She currently works at Traverse City Area Public Schools (TCAPS) as an English Language Learner Assistant, writes historical articles for the Record Eagle, and sits on the Board of the Traverse Area Historical Society.
