Magical History Tour
The History Center, located at 322 Sixth Street, presents a 90-minute tour hitting the highlights of Traverse City’s history and key Traverse City areas including Sixth Street, Old Town, Downtown, Clinch Park and the Grand Traverse Commons.
Take the trolley tour and experience Traverse City history first-hand! The tour begins at the History Center where you will learn the actors and drama of our past: the raw lumbering days, the coming of the fruit industry, the expansion of railroads and factories, early resorts, and growth of the Traverse City State Hospital. You will board a comfortable coach for a 90-minute, nine-mile tour of Traverse City. Points of interest include the stylish homes of Sixth Street, the Old Town commercial district, the historic Courthouse, the City’s beautiful downtown, the Bay front and Warehouse district, Traverse City’s oldest neighborhood, Slabtown, and the Village at the Grand Traverse Commons, formerly the site of the Traverse City State Hospital. Tour guides are eager to share stories about Perry Hannah, the town’s founder, “Wild” Bill Germaine, a colorful con artist of the turn of the century, cannons that mysteriously discharged during a ceremonial occasion, the Native American presence at the mouth of the Boardman River, patient care at the Traverse City State Hospital, and little known facts about the relationship of Traverse City to celebrities like Henry Ford and golfing great Walter Hagen.
