“Idlewild is a vacation community in southeast Lake County, a rural part of northwestern lower Michigan. During the first half of the 20th century, it was one of the few resorts in the country where African-Americans were allowed to vacation and purchase property before such discrimination became illegal in 1964. It surrounds Lake Idlewild, and the headwaters of the Pere Marquette River run through the area. Much of the surrounding area is within Manistee National Forest.”
