 In partnership with the Village of Mackinaw City, the Mackinaw Area Historical Society is well

  underway in their development of Heritage Village.  On approximately 43 acres of land just

 west of Mackinaw City, visitors can enjoy discovery trails, historic buildings, a

covered pavilion, a restored log home, a sawmill and much more. Heritage Village's period is 

from 1880 through 1917, a time of unparalleled changes in lighting, transportation, 

 communication, housing, health care and nearly every other aspect of Straits-area living. It

 also reflects an era from which a precious few buildings are still standing, and stories told

by parents, grandparents and great grandparents abound. During the summer you may visit

the village any day.  For tours conducted by docents we are open Friday, Saturday, Sunday,

and Monday from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm.  The most common response we receive when

visitors find out how short a time we have been in existence and when the Village started is

"WOW"!  We are extremely proud of what we have accomplished and our members'

determination to move ahead.
