 Mackinac Island's Historic
Summer Cottages
Presented by
  Phil Porter, Mackinac Island State Historic Parks (Retired)
 In the late nineteenth century, Mackinac Island became one of the Midwest’s premier resorts. The island’s cottage communities mirrored Mackinac’s growing popularity as a summer destination. Our speaker provides a visual tour highlighting the evolution of the island’s summer cottage communities from early simple vernacular homes to later opulent mansions.
