Historic Tours


As a result of the respect for preserving its historic buildings and Victorian-era homes, downtown Boyne City is recognized on the National Register of Historic Places. The historic district includes the 100 and 200 blocks of Water and Lake streets, parts of Main Street between Lake and Park, the 100 block of South Park and the Pearl Street Historic District along the Boyne River.

The first phase of our historic walking tour includes the downtown commerce area.  Funded in part by a grant from the Michigan Preservation Fund of the National Trust for Historic Preservation and Michigan Historic Preservation Network, the tour includes stops at 52 buildings in downtown Boyne City.   Click here for color brochure.

The second phase,  completed in June 2016, includes residential, churches and parks. Click here for color brochure.
