According to at least one resident, the main draw of Boardman Township/South Boardman is its proximity to Traverse City (about 30 minutes), Cadillac (about 30 minutes), and Kalkaska (about 15 minutes). This centralized location to those communities means that when you need or want medium sized city amenities they are close by, but there is still plenty of room to move so you can avoid the over crowded streets of those communities during their respective festivals etc..

General History:

South Boardman was settled in 1872 and had a population of a mere 25. By 1918 the populace had grown to about 400 people and business was prosperous, thanks to the logging industry.
