History of Mackinac Island

Thursday, Nov 18, 2021

5:30pm – 7:00pm

Mackinac Island has always been a special place. For many groups the Great Lakes served as a water highway connecting distant peoples and places. Mackinac Island, at the center of this waterway, became a convenient gathering place for Native Americans, missionaries, fur traders, soldiers, and tourists. Step back in time to explore the history of Mackinac Island with Steve Brisson, director of Mackinac State Historic Parks.

Brisson is also a former board member of the Michigan Humanities Council and vice chair of the Association for Great Lakes Maritime History. He is the author of six books on Mackinac history including Picturesque Mackinac and, most recently, Downtown Mackinac Island: An Album of Historic Photos.

This lecture will take place in-person at the Harbor Springs History Museum at 349 E Main Street. Advanced registration is appreciated. Admission is $10 and cookies and coffee will be served.
