Historic Traverse City
—The West Bay Waterfront —From any perspective this location marks the most historic industrial site in the Grand Traverse region. Here the Greilick family produced the woodwork, both interior and exterior, that finished the majority of the Victorian homes in the area along with all the woodwork for early Northern Michigan Asylum buildings. Years later on this site, the Parsons Company would develop "numerical control of machine tools" an accomplishment recognized worldwide as the beginning of the second industrial age.
