Join us for the following upcoming programs:
Join us as we host Rob Richardson for a special history presentation on the Fort Gratiot Hospital. Believed to be the oldest wooden structure in St. Clair County, the Hospital is currently being restored to its late 1800s condition. The Fort Gratiot Hospital Heritage Committee, a dedicated group of volunteers, has re-energized the project and the final phases of the exterior are happening this Spring. This presentation will give an in-depth look at the archaeological findings on Fort Gratiot and the Hospital.
All proceeds will go to the Fort Gratiot Hospital restoration project.
A history of early ice breakers at the Straits, this program focuses on keeping the channel open during the frigid winter as it always has been an important avenue of commerce. This will feature the rail ferry Chief Wawatam as she goes about transporting rail cars from Mackinaw City to St. Ignace. The program will conclude with ice breaking today as done by the Coast Guard.
