The Welcome

It looks like The Welcome is returning to Mackinaw City! The replica sailing vessel was built at the Mackinaw Maritime Park during the bicentennial of the American Revolution. The original Welcome was built in the 1770s.

Thanks for sharing this news. I remember watching The Welcome being built during our annual vacations to Cheboygan and Mackinaw City and look forward to seeing it find a new home at The Headlands!

I was one of the guides working at Fort Michilimackinac during the construction of the Welcome, though I had moved away before it was complete.

I remember them building the Welcome. We visited during that time. My father was fascinated. I am so glad it is coming home!! Also read about it in our local paper.
