Sanilac County Historic Village and Museum

If you plan to take a trip on M-25 to see Michigan’s thumb along Lake Huron’s shore, definitely leave yourself enough time to see the Sanilac County Historic Village and Museum in Port Sanilac.

This gem of a village—17 buildings in all—surrounds the 2 1/2-story Victorian Loop-Harrison Mansion, built in 1872. Many of the structures were moved to the village from surrounding communities, giving visitors the chance to discover what life was like in Sanilac County in the 1800s and early 1900s.

Along with the mansion, guests will experience a carriage barn, a dairy museum, several log cabins, a schoolhouse and church, a train depot, a general store, and more.
