From its position on Mackinac Island, Fort Mackinac has stood
sentinel over the Straits of Mackinac for 115 years, having been
built by British soldiers during the American Revolution. The
original fort has been restored as a National Historic Landmark and
is one of Michigan's favourite attractions. Visitors can stroll
through the 1780 officer's stone quarters, play dress-up in the
discovery room, enjoy an audio-visual presentation in the Post
Commissary, view the exhibits and watch lively demonstrations.
