Harbor Springs History Museum

Harbor Springs History Museum

Once a center for local government, a grand old building in the heart of Harbor Springs is now a center for local history. Welcome to the Harbor Springs History Museum located in the former city hall building on Main Street. Our museum not only serves as the new home to the Harbor Springs Area Historical Society, it also features exhibits documenting the unique history of this area.

Leading a journey beginning with our first residents, the Odawa Indians, our exhibits escort visitors through time stopping to visit with missionaries, homesteaders, loggers, downtown merchants and resorters. With the arrival of each of these groups, whether by foot, horse, canoe, steam ferry, train or automobile, a connection was made with this place. And with each of these connections, another chapter in our history was written.
