Port Sanilac Roller Rink Revisited

This summer the Sanilac County Historic Village & Museum is displaying people's memories of the Port Sanilac roller rink.  The display is in the mansion's dining room.  Once situated where the Harbor office sits, the arch-roofed roller rink was the scene of much entertainment, and more than a few local couples may have met there before becoming man and wife.

Visitors are encouraged to read the "memory book" and add their own memories on the chalk boards.  You may also bring pictures of the roller rink to share with others.  All items contributed will be archived after the exhibit ends this fall.

Who knows what business used the building after the skating rink was done?  Can you figure out who had a wedding reception at this location?
