OS E3 – The King of Beaver Island

Cover photo for Omitted History Podcast episode, The King of Beaver Island

Beaver Island lies about 32 miles off the coast of Michigan, smack dab in the middle of the two peninsulas. Its population of 657 people have a total of eight restaurants to choose from, but that’s really only during the summer. It’s the type of place that largely shuts down when the tourists don’t want to come visit. It’s a quiet, peaceful island, wholly unremarkable as a vacation destination today. But for six whole years in the 1850s, the island and its people, they had themselves a king.
