Come Learn About This Historic Treasure

If you’ve been there, you know exactly what this is about when we hear more about this one-of-a-kind treasure - the historic Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island. Hear from Jane Thomas of the Grand Hotel about the history of this gem since it opened in 1887. Hear about movies filmed there such as “This Time For Keeps” with Esther Williams, and the popular “Somewhere In Time” with Christopher Reeves. Learn about Presidents who stayed there, and how Ripley’s Believe It Or Not distinguished it for having the “Longest Porch In The World” at 880 ft. Enjoy numerous photos that Jane will show us. Hear how you could stay at this fabulous world destination that is now available to anyone looking for an unforgettable summer resort experience. Questions?
