In 1966, Mackinac College
opened its doors in the former Moral Re-armament (MRA) campus on the east end of Mackinac Island. Today, that location is known as the Mission Point Resort.
While the College used the existing buildings and dormitories, the first (and perhaps only) building built specifically for the college was the Peter Howard Memorial Library.
The library was situated between M-185 and the shoreline - most likely in the area that today is occupied by the wonderful Adirondack chairs on the great lawn of Mission Point. Prior to visiting the Mackinac College website (http://www.mackiniaccollege.com
) I had no idea this building existed. What once was a focal point for the college seems to have simply vanished.
Certainly someone out there knows the story of the missing library. Is it you?
