Mackinaw City Historical PathwayMackinaw residents have long rendered services to passing ships. One of the most interesting was The Marine & Weather Reporting Service, established in 1877 by Forest J. Stimpson. Stimpson made daily reports on weather conditions at the Straits and would often make direct contact with the ships by small boat, carrying messages, mail and supplies. Messages about the ship's location at the Straits were forwarded to he owners — thus the Marine Reporting Service.
