Haunted Marquette:¬† Ghost Stories from the Queen City   

Z  Online Class:  A Zoom invitation link will be sent one day before class begins.

Founded as a harbor town to ship iron ore from the nearby mines, Marquette, Michigan, became known as the Queen City of the North for its thriving industries, beautiful buildings, and for being the largest city in Upper Michigan. But is Marquette also the Queen of Lake Superior’s Haunted Cities? Marquette resident Tyler Tichelaar has spent years collecting tales of the many ghosts who haunt the cemeteries, churches, businesses, hotels, and homes of Marquette. Now, separating fact from fiction, he will delve into the historical record to determine which stories may be true and which are just the fancies of frightened minds.

 

Tyler Tichelaar is a seventh-generation resident of Marquette, Michigan. He is the award-winning author of 21 fiction and nonfiction books, including Haunted Marquette, and Kawbawgam: The Chief, The Legend, The Man. Tyler holds a Ph.D. in literature from Western Michigan University, and bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Northern Michigan University. He is the former President of the Upper Peninsula Publishers and Authors Association.
