The power plant at Advance closed in January 1997.

There used to be a tank farm near Stover Road in Charlevoix. I think it was serviced by Imperial tankers. In Ironton I once saw the Irvin L Clymer deliver a cargo of agricultural lime. The boats that seemed to make the most passages into lake Charlevoix in the 70', 80's and 90's were the Kling, Nicolet, Taylor, Calcite II and Clymer. I'm sure there were others too.

I recently found a photo of the Myron C Taylor unloading coal at a power plant on Lake Charlevoix. The year was 1993. What city was this plant located in and when did it close? Also, did Lake Charlevoix have any other commercial docks? I had no clue freighters used to transit that lake.


Believe the power plant was in Advance.
