“relive the past, make a memory”

Revolutionary Times. This is Mackinac.Treasures from the past come to life at this 18th-century fort and fur trading village, reconstructed based on historic maps and more than 60 years of archaeological excavations. As you walk through the site, you are stepping back in time to 1777, as the British prepared to end the American Revolution with a decisive blow. Here, you will see and hear how residents of this fur trading community participated in that campaign while defending their homes from new threats. Historical interpreters representing voyageurs, British soldiers, and French-Canadian merchant families are stationed throughout the fort to answer your questions and perform demonstrations. Located on the shore of the Straits of Mackinac, visitors can enjoy stunning views of the Mackinac Bridge, the straits, and the Upper Peninsula.

Enjoy 13 reconstructed buildings, exciting exhibits such as Treasures from the Sand, the Commanding Officer's Home, France at Mackinac, and the Kids' Rendezvous Interpretive Play area. Two unique stores are also on the grounds - the expansive Visitor's Center under the Mackinac Bridge, and the Hearthside, nestled in the South Southwest Rowehouse.

A well-preserved site with live demonstrations of live inside and outside the fort. Perfect for the before or after phase of a trip to Mackinac Island.
