History

Grand Hotel opened on July 10, 1887 as a venture of the Mackinac Island Hotel Company. In 1910, the hotel was purchased by Henry Weaver, its manager since 1900. The hotel was sold again in 1918, this time to J. Logan Ballard, who died only five years later. In 1925, William Stewart Woodfill purchased the hotel with two other men, to whom he later sold his shares. In 1933, Woodfill would purchase the hotel again, this time as sole owner, after it fell into receivership. Woodfill, who also managed the hotel for a number of years, retained ownership throughout the mid-20th century, though he gradually turned responsibility for the hotel's management over to Dan Musser beginning in 1951. The Musser family purchased the hotel from Woodfill in 1979, and continue to run it today.

Since its opening, Grand Hotel has become a popular family vacation destination and conference location with its upscale accommodations and dining facilities. Features of the hotel include an elaborate, multi-course dinner included for every guest, 18 holes of golf, a 660-foot front porch overlooking the water, and a pool that Esther Williams made famous in the movie This Time For Keeps in 1946.

Information for this History was taken from Grand Hotel: The biography of an American institution by John McCabe. This book, published by the hotel on the occasion of its centennial season, is available in box 1 of the papers, and includes images of historical documents owned by the hotel and other repositories that are not included in this collection.

Display Photographs 1855-1995 [subseries]

Photographs that were once displayed on the walls of the Grand Hotel can be found in the Display Photographs, 1856-1995 subseries. Beginning in 2006, a small group of photographs were transferred to the Bentley Historical Library. The Bentley scanned, color corrected, and printed copies of these photographs and returned the copies to the Grand Hotel; the originals are preserved in this collection. Some photographs are severely faded due to years of sun exposure. The display photographs have been divided into similar groupings as the Photographic Material: Hotel and Grounds, Mackinac Island, Events, People, and Construction. Additional accruals to this series are expected.
