From Fort Mackinac

This is the officers' house at Fort was one house but divided down the middle. Each side had a living room with a bay window, a dining room and kitchen on the first floor, along with a small room I assume for the maid.

The upstairs was divided into two bedrooms. I don't know why but I didn't take any pictures of the upstairs rooms.

Enlarge the pictures and look at the living room furniture--just look at how ornate it was. I can't imagine having that today, much less in those times. I would not even want to think about dusting it!

These were taken through a plexiglass wall I guess you would call it. It let us see but not touch. I could have looked longer but we were holding others up. It wasn't super busy, but just seemed to be a few coming along all the time.
