ELK RAPIDS, Michigan — The Michigan Historical Commission has approved six new historical markers, including one for a golf course in northern Michigan.

Last week's approvals include Elk Rapids Golf Park, which opened in July 1924 after the community passed a special parks bond and bought shares in the club; the 173-year old Adrian Engine House No. 1; and Sts. Cornelius and Cyprian Catholic Church in Leslie.

Other markers commemorate Isaac Watts Willard, who platted the village of Paw Paw and opened a mercantile and grist mill; Langford and Lydia Sutherland, a pioneer-era family in Washtenaw County's Pittsfield Township; and John C. Kauffman, a Civil War veteran in Presque Isle.

The commission, which met at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum in Grand Rapids, also accepted applications seeking several new markers.
