Presque Isle County Historical Society and Museum [Michigan]

The Society operates a museum, housed in the Bradley House—an early-20th-century, seven-bedroom, two-story, single-family bungalow built in 1914. This house was the home of the president of Michigan Limestone and Chemical Company, the largest industry in this community. The museum features three floors of exhibits, including the Bradley dining room, a Victorian music room, a 1900s bedroom, the Bertram sisters' millinery shop, and a county store. Other exhibits include a school room from the early 1900s, farm implements, household goods, woodworking and lumbering tools, and a maritime room.

The museum offers exhibits, tours, and occasional educational and recreational programs.
