As a member of the Historical Society of Michigan (HSM), the Hastings Public Library is able to give patrons access to virtual presentations on Michigan history that we showed in our Community Room pre-COVID.

History Hounds

In the late nineteenth century, Mackinac Island became one of the Midwest’s premier resorts. The island’s cottage communities mirrored Mackinac’s growing popularity as a summer destination. Our speaker provides a visual tour highlighting the evolution of the island’s summer cottage communities from early simple vernacular homes to later opulent mansions.
