Historic Fort Mackinac
- Historic Fort Mackinac, located on Mackinac Island will open on
Monday, May 7th. Fort Mackinac was captured by the British in the
opening days of the War of 1812, and despite an attempt to regain the
Island by US forces, remained in British hands through the remainder
of the war.
This year, a Battlefield Survey will be done, of the actual
battlefield, and a new childrens exhibit will open in June. Fort is
open daily, and is a real fun family trip to the island where time
stopped, in 1912. See and tour the fort, as it was, enjoy the museum.
