Mackinac Island

horseMackinac Island is located on Lake Huron and the eastern end of the Straits of Mackinac. It can only beacklogo reached by ferryboat or plane. The island is approximately 8 miles in circumference and 3.8 square miles in total area.

Mackinac was originally home to Native American populations dating to 900 A.D. European exploration began in the17th century and Mackinac Island became a key French outpost during the early fur trading days.

The British took control of the island after the French-Indian Wars, around 1780. It was not long after that Fort Mackinac was constructed. In 1783, the island was acquired by the United States. It remained in U.S. hands until the War of 1812. That's when the British decided to regain control. Taking the Americans completely by surprise, the British military easily took back the island. As added protection, the British built a second fort. In 1814, a second, vicious battle occurred between British and American forces. Lives were lost including the respected U.S. military leader, Major Andrew Hunter Holmes. British forces again won the battle and remained in control until the treaty of 1815 turned it over to the United States.

It wasn't until the late 19th century that Mackinac Island became a popular tourist destination. Much of the island has undergone extensive historical preservation and restoration. The entire island is listed as a National Historic Landmark. In an effort to keep the historical integrity of the island, all motor vehicles are banned from the island. Means of transportation remain horse driven carriages and bicycles.

Over the centuries, the island has become home to considerable folklore. Spirits of ancient Native Americans are said to roam the island. Eerie mists and ghostly energies of soldiers and former island residents have also been seen wandering the town and woodlands.

Mission Point Resort on Mackinac Island, MI

missionpointAn evangelical movement began in the 1950's. It was during that period a group called the MRA (Moral Re-Armament) came to Mackinac. They soon broke ground on what would become the Mission Point Resort.For a few years in the 1970's the facility served as a college. It eventually changed ownership to become the Mission Point Resort.

The theater was the first area constructed. Fifty-foot trusses made of Norway Pine supported the roof and 45 tons of native stone formed the building.
The Main Lobby is one of the most distinctive architectural structures on the island. Nine-ton majestic trusses, converging at a height of 36 feet, resemble a 16-sided tepee. This structure fulfills the Indian prophecy that "Someday, on the east end of the Island, a great tepee will be erected. All nations will come there and learn about peace."
