Portland Centennial Book, 1869-1969
Portland, Ionia County, Michigan, 1881
The Centennial Book
was produced in the surprisingly short period of one month
by Elizabeth Anesi and Lucille Esch, under the auspices of the Centennial Book Committee.
Many members of the community contributed photographs and information to the project.
Page Sponsors provided financial support for the books' publication.
An index of 524 entries, prepared by Elizabeth Anesi several years after the Centennial Book's publication,
has been incorporated into this electronic version.
A fine pictorial perspective map of Portland, notable for its extraordinary accuracy and detail.
