Historical society burns paid-off courthouse mortgage


The Arenac County Historical Society held a party Aug. 18 to celebrate paying off its $85,000 mortgage on the Ye Olde Courthouse in Omer in eight years. Guest speakers talked to a packed courthouse about the early history of the building, which was constructed in the 1890s, its years as a Mason lodge to when it was purchased in the 1990s and later sold to the historical society. Afterward the mortgage was burned and cake was served to the guests.
