1914 plans for new station completed; 1916 station completed and put in commission (USLSS Annual Reports). Station was built on Michigan State Park land in 1915. By agreement, when it ceased operation in 1968 it reverted back to park ownership. The station was remodeled and opened as the Mackinac Island State Park Visitor's Center in 1970 (Steve Brisson, Mackinac State Historic Parks).
