Hotel Iroquois

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 4 January 2017 in Business & Industry and Portfolio.

Located at 7485 Main Street on Mackinac Island, the Hotel Iroquois was originally built as a home by Mackinac Island blacksmith Robert Benjamin in 1900. In 1904, Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Poole purchased the home and transformed the Benjamin House into the Hotel Iroquois. Mr. Poole named the hotel after the Iroquois Hotel in Chicago, in which he survived the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. After Mr. Poole’s death, his daughter, Alicia, managed the Iroquois until 1954 when Sam and Margaret McIntire purchased the property.
