Other Activities TBA



Please sign up to volunteer to spend time in the historical building. We need you to be able to keep the historical treasures we have available to the public. Without you the wonder of the past of BBI will be lost. We cannot open our doors without your help. A sing-up sheet will be in the museum and contact Polly Keller at cellphone number: 248-622-0587 or island phone: 231-634-7277.


REMEMBER to tour the island marked trails. Maps showing the numbered posts and mileage may be purchased at the historical building.


Thank you volunteers for the many hours you have given to the museum.

The library keeps the same schedule as the BBIHS. Return books to the building or put them in the book drop at the side door of the museum.


Quite a number of books have disappeared from the discussion collection at the BBI Historical Society Library.  Did you perhaps forget to return one?  Please check your shelves. There is no fine and no questions asked, we'd just like to get these books back, as this section is one of the most popular. Or, perhaps, do you have a copy that you would like to give to the library?  If so, we would
appreciate your donation.
