Did you know the Grand Traverse Mall at South Airport Road and Division Street, which opened in 1992, sits on former farmland? This barn was located where the mall now sits. When this 1904 photo was taken, the farm belonged to George Douglas. The property and barn were later owned by Jerry Oleson. These images are provided by the Traverse Area Historical Society in collaboration with the Traverse Area District Library.
