Travel back to the history and stories from 1880 to 1917 at Heritage Village, just outside Mackinaw City. Visit a period of unparalleled changes in lighting, transportation, communication, housing, health care and nearly every aspect of Straits-area living. Forty three acres of natural beauty includes buildings that bring history alive and tell stories from the lives of our great grandparents and grandparents. Costumed docents in every building tell the stories of the families who lived there and talk about a time before electric lights, airplanes, and television.
