Originally built for Lawrence Andrew Young, a Chicago lawyer, the Michigan Governor?s Mansion is a stunning three-story house placed on a bluff that is overlooking the Straits of Mackinac. It was built in 1902, featuring 11 bedrooms, a full basement, and 9 ? bathrooms.

The Michigan Governor?s Mansion, before being acquired by the state in 1944, was also owned by the Hugo Scherer family from Detroit. The Mackinac Island State Park Commission purchased the house and maintained the estate. It held its first official function in 1945 and continuously hosted significant events up until today.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1997, the Michigan Governor?s Mansion is mostly the private summer residence of such state officials and family, so it is not necessarily open to the public.
