The individual selected will report to an intern supervisor from MCAAC and MAHS. Following are descriptions of the two non-profits and the scope of the internship as it applies to both groups. MAHS: In partnership with the Village of Mackinaw City, the Mackinaw Area Historical Society, a 501(c)3, has developed an architectural museum reflecting life in the Straits of Mackinac area between 1880 and 1917. This time period represents unparalleled changes in settlement, housing, transportation, communications and health care in the era between two wars that altered the United States and the world, the American Civil War (War between the States) and the First World War. Currently the Village consists of nine buildings that are either original, relocated structures or reconstructed examples. Heritage Village is a Mackinaw City village park which is open daily with guided, docent tours on Friday – Mondays 1:00 – 5:00 PM, from Memorial day to Labor Day.
