Occupations Outside Chandler Township
Most of Chandler Township's residents have had to find occupations outside of the township. During the early 1900's, lumbering and farming provided sufficient resources to support a family. Lumbering died out in the 1920's. In the early half of the 1900's farming could still sustain many Chandler Township families, but as the years passed, residents had to search for jobs outside the township either as the sole source of income, or in addition to continuation of farming. Occupations outside of Chandler Township for the residents have been varied; sloop building by Ken Starr, like in the photo above, teaching in the Petoskey School District, and working for an advertising paper, an EMS (emergency medical services), policeman, county road commission, just to name a few.
