|Facility:||Mackinaw Area Heritage Village|
|Description:||The Heritage Village, operated by the Mackinaw Area Historical Society, portrays life in the Straits area from 1880 - 1917. Half and full day programs are offered. Docents interpret the facilities, which include a one-room school, Mackinaw City's original pestilence house, a sawmill, an 1880's church, a wigwam, and a historic farm in the early stages of restoration. Two of their buildings are heated with wood-burning stoves and we have modern outhouses. Electricity can be provided.
The village has a covered picnic pavilion which can be used for eating or other activities that need tables and benches. There is a fire pit if you wish to cook over an open fire. Wide open spaces for active games and an interpreted nature trail for some outdoor studies are also available.
