hoop mansionThe Sanilac County Historic Village and Museum is a collection of more than a dozen historic buildings located on ten acres of the original Dr. Joseph Loop estate in the Lake Huron harbor village of Port Sanilac. The Sanilac County Historical Society invites you to step back in time as you wander through the beautiful gardens and the Victorian, Edwardian, and vintage buildings and exhibits that are featured on the property.

Permanent collections include marine shipwreck items, military memorabilia, and Native American artifacts. The 1872 Loop-Harrison mansion is furnished in period; many of the accoutrements original to the family. A functioning centennial schoolhouse gives hundreds of local elementary-age children the experience of learning in a one-room 1800's environment every year. Our turn of the century General Store and Historic Church still fulfill their original purposes.

One of Michigan's most popular performance venues - the Barn Theatre - is housed in the Loop family's 1880's era barn on the museum property and, if you enjoy ghost stories, we have our share of those too. You will travel to another century simply by paying us a visit.
