Michigan's Heritage Park

Visitors can explore 10,000 years of Michigan history in a natural woodland setting in Whitehall. A paved half-mile trail through the woods includes a variety of historic stops including a Native American Wigwam Village, Settlers Cabin, Fur Trade Post, Civil War Camp, and 1900s Farmhouse. Costumed interpreters greet guests and offer them an opportunity to participate in various activities. Special activities will be held throughout the season including a Civil War Encampment and Muster, Honoring Native Heritage Pow Wow, a Taste of History, and Harvest Days. The park is a site of the Lakeshore Museum Center. Michigan's Heritage Park is located at 8637 North Durham Road just beyond the Comfort Inn. US 31 exit 128, left to North Durham Road and the park. The park is open May through October. Visit http://www.lakeshoremuseum.org/project/michigan-heritage-park/ for hours and an events calendar.
