Today, the Samels Farmstead stands fully equipped and
preserved on the site, and it has become an education
center that demonstrates how the same fields and forest
sustained the Samels Family for the last 100+ years.

Click here to fill out the Samels farm survey. The survey can be filled out online and was setup by two students at Elk Rapids Middle School's International Baccalaureate Program. The students are working with the Samels Family Heritage Society on a community service project. The students put up the online survey to study the current awareness of Samels Farm in our community.
