Jesse Besser Museum

The Jesse Besser Museum is adjacent to the Alpena Community College on the north side of Johnson Street just north of the Thunder Bay River. It has four outdoor exhibits from Alpena's white pine lumbering days. The Herron family has ties to three of the four outdoor exhibits: the Green School, the Spratt Church, and the McKay House. In addition, my mother, Catherine Huston Herron has a strong association with one the interior exhibits: the Carl Henry Law Office. The links below connect to page that reproduce the museum's brochures of the various exhibits plus some photos I took of the exhibits and commentaries on the relationships to Herron family.
