 At Historic White Pine Village you will stroll through a 12 acre village that details the life of Mason County’s earliest settlers. Enjoy more than 30 buildings that bring to life the agriculture and lumbering industries that brought settlers to the area. 

 

The Port of Ludington Maritime Museum enjoys digitally interactive exhibits that share the vibrant maritime history of the area. Pilot the Pere Marquette 22 across Lake Michigan, experience the 1940 Armistice Day Storm and learn about the historic SS Badger.
