Harris, Michigan (H.B. Harris Orchard 1908) - contributed by Paul Petosky

In the township of Harris, the village of Harris has one store, which is conducted by Michael Harris, ex-member of the legislature from this district. In addition to his mercantile business Mr. Harris handles general forest products, and the output of the Tuttle Shingle Mill at Indian Town. The forest product business conducted by Mr. Harris is quite extensive and amounts to about $10,000 in a single season. Mr. Harris has been a resident of that locality since 1875. George De Langhary was appointed the first postmaster of Harris in 1880, but resigned three years later, since which time the office has been held by Mr. Harris or his son. The postoffice was first called De Langhary, but the name was changed to Harris in 1900. Mr. Harris has been supervisor from his township for many years and is vice president of the Bark River State Bank.
