Overview

At this National Historic Landmark, visitors can learn about 17th century St. Ignace: the Ojibwa who formed the population, the Huron refugees and the French who established the area as the center of fur trade. Check out our award winning Clan Park, the beautiful new Sculpture Park and our Longhouse on our grounds. Also visit Father Marquettes burial site in our Marquette Mission Park. Admission is by donation. Must be seen to be believed! Amazing!

There is no admission fees but donations are greatly appreciated and accepted. They also have souvenirs of all price ranges. And, yes I do believe there is handicapped access if I remember correctly.
