The Guidebook – Now Available

The Park Avenue Prowl book is available for sale at two stops on the Prowl — Pine River Books, LLC at 104 Park Avenue and Harsha House Museum at 103 State Street.  It can also be purchased at any CCHPS event.  Just $9.43 plus sales tax, for a total of $10.  All proceeds help “preserve the past for the future.” 

Special bonus: Take a break and check out the new Undine Exhibit at the Harsha House Museum, a stop on the Prowl.  This year-long CCHPS exhibit tells the story of a 19th-Century Lake Charlevoix settlement.

Prowl with Your Smart Phone

Yes, you can take the prowl with your smart phone! You’ll need to use the full site option to see all of the material.

For those with non-3G iPads, Nooks, and Kindles, a pdf version of the site will be available by April 30, 2011. Download it, and take the tour!

The picture?  Well, you will learn about this as you do the Prowl, but it’s here to entertain our iPad users!
