What’s in a name

The Fernwood name has historic significance. It was the orginal name for the southwest area of Traverse City. What is now known as the Grand Traverse Circuit was originally The Fernwood Chapel. It was decided to bring back the Fernwood name through our neighborhood association.

The Fernwood Neighborhood Association is dedicated to fostering a strong sense of community and connection. We organize and host various events throughout the year such as community clean-ups, block parties, and cultural celebrations. By actively engaging with our neighbors, we aim to create a safe and vibrant neighborhood where everyone feels welcome.
