Making history fun! The Harbor Springs Area Historical Society is pleased to once again present Shay Days, a celebration of inventor Ephraim Shay and his contributions to the community.
In addition to his geared locomotive that made him famous, Ephraim Shay (1839-1916) designed and built the Harbor Springs Water Works, a stamped-steel building called the Hexagon House and a steel yacht called the Aha.
Activities on both Friday and Saturday include kids crafts and games at the Shay Hexagon House, live model steam trains in Shay Park and self-guided tours of the historic Hexagon House.  Hours are 10:00 am to 3:00 pm both days.
