Archaeology at Historic Mill Creek Posted August 18, 2020 Archaeology played a key role in the development of Historic Mill Creek Discovery Park. After its rediscovery in 1972, excavations happened in 1973-75, 1979, and between 1984-1994. Join Curator of Archaeology Dr. Lynn Evans for a brief history of the site and its excavation, followed by a walking tour of the archaeological sites. This is a free Mackinac Parks: 125 event! This will be an outdoor event, and all Covid-19 precautions will be followed. We encourage guests to dress for the weather.
