Covid-19 Update

First and foremost, we hope you and your family continue to do well.

We want to thank Mackinac Associates members for your continued support during these challenging times and appreciate that many of you renewed your membership even though you knew you may not be able to visit us this past year.

We are excited that sites are getting ready to open for the 2021 season beginning May 1st. Staff at Mackinac State Historic Parks will return to the office as needed to complete tasks and finish preparing for the season but may still be working remotely when not required to be on site. All staff are available through email during regular working hours and messages can easily be gotten to any staff person.

Event dates have been set for 2021 events but please continue to monitor the website and e-news for updates as event dates near. We are hopeful that the 2021 season will have less restrictions than 2020, but we will follow whatever guidelines are in place by the state and the health department.

Membership renewals and donations have been processed weekly while staff worked remotely but will begin to be processed more regularly as staff returns to the office. If you have questions about your membership, you can call the office at (231) 436-4100.

Mackinac State Historic Parks is pleased with how things went smoothly for the 2020 season even with the restrictions in place and are looking forward to opening for the 2021 season. Updates on opening dates, hours and guidelines that are in place are posted on the Mackinac State Historic Parks website.

If traveling is still not in your plans this season, you can still get your Mackinac fix! Mackinac State Historic Parks continued to expand on what is included in the “Explore at Home” section of the website. Explore the history of the Straits of Mackinac and our historic sites with online exhibits, exciting videos, educational materials and more! You can also check out all the videos on the Mackinac State Historic Parks YouTube channel.
