Mackinac Island Historic Downtown
Step inside the five historic downtown buildings and experience a time that isn't so long gone. 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; visit a 19th century church. Take time to smell the herb garden, ask questions; see original 18th century French-Canadian architecture; hear the story of an accidental shooting that led to a ground-breaking medical discovery. It all happened here - in these actual buildings.
