After transcribing it, his interest was piqued enough to begin research on the history and traditions of the area. Among other things, he wanted to find out what prompted so many St. Louisans to spend their summers in Port Huron, Michigan.</p> Wed, 26 Jun 2013 03:03:01 +0000 Mary Edwards, Alex Heuer & Don Marsh 27723 at http://news.stlpublicradio.org Douglas Brookes Explores St. Louis’ Summer Travel To Lake Huron
