Historic Setting

A Fascinating Period is all around you when your special event is set among Yesteryear.

A relaxed lakeshore Site with the unique opportunity to inspire.

Step through time into the Grice House, which has been furnished entirely by donated items from numerous area families to depict life in this part of Michigan in the nineteenth and early twentieth century.

Family donations throughout time have stocked the lakeside museum in Harbor Beach with a cross section of artifacts and lifestyle. 

The living conditions were sparse by today's standards, however the Grice House was the beginning of a strong settlement of Great Lakes Peoples.  Review their lives here the the Grice House.


A resent structure added to the museum complex is a one room school house built around 1920.  The Adam School was located on Section Line Road and replaced in 1988.  The old school building was moved to the Museum Grounds in 1988.  The school is furnished with desks, books, and the stove common in the new room country school of Yesteryear.  There are local school yearbooks that bring a nostalgic smile to many who grew up in these parts.

The school building can be used by school groups for a living history experience.  There are a collection of newspaper clippings and obituaries for the family historian and treasure seeker alike.
