By Jim AkansIn the first half of the 20th Century, the way “north” was traveled along the US highway route 27,now commonly referred to as “Old 27.” Adventurersalong the two-laner wandered through villages,towns, countryside and forests on there way to vaca-tion destinations such as Grayling, Gaylord, IndianRiver, right up to the terminus in Cheboygan, andperhaps took a short ride on US 23 to Mackinaw City.The construction of the I-75 freeway during themid 1950’s and early 1960’s rerouted most of theseearly travelers to the much faster, though less scenicsuper-highway. Old 27 has remained a favorite pathfor those seeking a more up close look at the pleas-ant peninsula about them, and last August theHouse of Representatives passed Resolution No. 319designating the 308 miles of US 27 in Michigan as anhistoric state road.Next weekend, on August 26th and 27th, NorthernMichigan residents and visitors will have a once a year opportunity to recapture a visual reminder of the route’s original spirit and purpose. The annualOld US 27 Motor Tour will bring a parade of vintagevehicles northward once again from NorthernIndiana to Cheboygan, promoting the historic char-acter of the route, and providing lots of visual enter-tainment for those watching the “parade” of up to150 or more 1950’s and 1960’s era vehicles making their way through towns along the way.The Tour will arrive in uptown Grayling mid tolate afternoon next Friday, August 26th, where there will also be a 30-minute show by The Just For Kickshigh-spirited cloggers at 5 pm, followed by a StreetDance from 8 to 10 pm.Saturday morning the tour will leave Grayling High School at 10 am and stop in downtown Gaylordfrom around 11 am until 3 pm. After the driversenjoy lunch and a bit of shopping in town, the Tourheads back on the road and will arrive in Cheboyganat approximately 4:30 pm, where the vehicles will beon display at the VFW Hall until8:30 pm.Gather up those vintage items and works of art; an opportu-nity to have them assessed by a leading, highly respectedappraiser is coming to Northern Michigan soon.Ernest J. DuMouchelle, esteemed vice-president of the inter-nationally renown DuMouchelle Art Galleries Company, and afeatured appraiser on the popular PBS television program; Antiques Road Show, will be visiting Gaylord on August 24thand 25th, and offering his expertise in valuing your antiquesand works of art.The Gaylord Area Chamber of the Arts is sponsoring DuMouchelle’s two-day visit, and proceeds will help to benefitGACA’s ongoing mission of presenting visual and performing arts events and workshops to the community. Verbal appraisals at the Arts Center on Wednesday, August24th, from 10 am until 4 pm are $7 per item, written appraisalsare $15 per item. DuMouchelle will offer home visits onThursday for $100. An advance deposit of $50 is required andsome restrictions do apply. Please note that appraisals bothdays will be by appointment only, and there are a limited num-ber of spots available on the schedule.Call GACA at (989) 732-3242 to reserve your slot and takeadvantage of this unique opportunity.
