    • Bob Tagatz

      Mr. Tagatz has more than thirty years of civic experience in historical preservation in Michigan, Florida and Georgia. Twenty-one years ago, Bob came to Mackinac Island specifically because of his interest in Grand Hotel and the study of turn-of-the century wood frame hotels – which Grand Hotel is one of eleven still standing today. He became enamored with the beauty and history of Michigan and its people, and feels fortunate to be able to study at what he feels is one of the most historically significant resorts hotels in the United States. He assembled Grand Hotel’s first archives and published a book and DVD on its history.
