Located one mile north of Harbor Beach, MI near the marina, The Grice House Museum offers a glimpse at live in the past, while preserving history for future generation.
This home was built by James G. Grice, who came here in the 1860's. 100 years later, with the last Grice descendent deceased, the city of Harbor Beach purchased the property. Soon after, a group of local volunteers helped to convert the house and surrounding area into a museum.
The museum complex is now comprised of the house, an old rural school house, and a pole barn. Special exhibit areas include a Marine Room, Sewing Room, Industrial Room, agricultural machinery and implements. The museum houses almost 2000 artifacts throughout the three museum buildings.
A state historic site, this restored century old railroad depot contains artifacts related to the local area development.
