Father Marquette National Memorial
On a rise overlooking the Straits of Mackinac, the Father Marquette National Memorial tells the story of the 17th-century missionary-explorer and the meeting of French and Native American cultures deep in the North American wilderness. The site includes the national memorial, a 15-station outdoor interpretive trail and panoramic views of the Mackinac Bridge. Located in Straits State Park, the Father Marquette National Memorial is open daily, from the end of May through early September 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
The Heart of the Great Turtle Island – Gchi Mshiikenh Deh Minising Project is transforming the Father Marquette National Memorial site into a place that welcomes, engages and excites visitors with indoor and outdoor experiences that encourage deeper understanding of the St. Ignace region.
