Step inside these five buildings of Historic Downtown Mackinac and experience a time that isn’t so long gone, at least not on Mackinac Island.

Smell hearty stew cooking over an open hearth; run your hands over wool strands on a spinning wheel; hear the clanging of a blacksmith’s hammer as steel meets steel, and then try it yourself. Take time to smell the herb garden; ask questions; see original 18th-century French-Canadian architecture; hear the story of an accidental shooting that lead to a groundbreaking medical discovery. It all happened here—in these actual buildings. Make your story as unique as these buildings and the many experiences within them.

Located on Mackinac Island. Open June 9 to August 25, 2018.

Included in admission to Fort Mackinac and The Richard and Jane Manoogian Mackinac Art Museum.
