Historic sites you will view on this trip include the Village of Alcona (now a ghost town), Mt. Joy Cemetery (with graves from as far back as 1855), the Low School Site (which was opened to accomodate students during the lumbering era), and St. Gabriel Catholic Church (which was constructed in 1894 and has not been altered since). Stop and view the quilt panels of the Alcona Quilt Trail along the way!
