The Museum Where Holling Lives On
So many writers’ lives remain bound up in the books they wrote, but it’s fortunate that Holling Clancy Holling’s legacy also lives on in a museum in Leslie, Mich. Leslie is a town of 2,000 people located 28 miles south of Lansing.
Joan Hoffman has kindly provided information about the Holling collection she curates in a large room downstairs in the G.A.R. (Grand Army of the Republic) Hall. The stone building, constructed in 1903 is on Leslie’s main east-west road, 107 East Bellevue, across from City Hall. (Tel. 517-589-5220) Besides the Holling collection, she notes, there are displays about the town’s history and the surrounding communities.
