Harbor History Talk - The Grand Hotel at 125
August 30th, 2012
5pm to 7pm
Location: Harbor Springs Hitory Museum
Join the Historical Society as we welcome special guest speaker Bob Tagatz, concierge and historian at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island. This year marks the landmark hotel’s 125th anniversary. Bob Tagatz is well known for his dynamic and laughter-inducing presentations about the hotel’s history. In addition to marking the birthday of this building, we will also celebrate our local connection. Our museum building was built (originally as the Emmet County Court House) in 1886 by builder Charles W. Caskey. The following year, Caskey started and completed the Grand Hotel.
Please join us at 5:00 pm for refreshments. The program will begin at 5:30 pm in the second-floor Anton Library at the Harbor Springs History Museum, 349 E Main Street. Admission is $5 per person and free to current Historical Society members. Reservations are suggested by calling (231) 526-9771.
