Correspondent Tom Wilmer reports from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Come along and join Dominic Miller on the shores of the Straits of Mackinac at the historic 18th Century colonial Michilimackinac fort and fur trading village. More than 16 structures have been painstakingly recreated utilizing years of archeological excavations and in situ research (ongoing since 1959). 

Dominic, a marketing and sales specialist at Michilimackinac also takes us to the nearby Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse and talks about Michilimackinac’s connection with the nearby historic fort on Mackinac Island.
