The Emmet County Historical Commission is appointed by and advises the Board of Commissioners in matters relating to history and works to develop historical programs, activities, projects, and services related to our county’s historic properties, oral history, land and marine archaeology, as well as educational and civic interests. The work of the Historical Commission is never intended to conflict with the work of any historic commission created by a city, village, or township in Emmet County.
