History of Greilickville and the Discovery Center Campus

The Discovery Center ~ Great Lakes is located in Greilickville, and unincorporated community in Leelanau County, just north of Traverse City. Since the mid-1850s, the area has had a history of hard work and community spirit, which are continued through the mission of the Discovery Center.

Further information is available here on the history of Greilickville, the Discovery Center’s campus, and Mike Dow’s incredible gift, which made the Discovery Center possible, with the help of Rotary Camps & Services.
