Historic White Pine Village will host trick-or-treaters on Saturday, October 20th, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. This family-friendly event is geared toward children of all ages. 


This event has become a huge hit with families!  Each year the Mason County Historical Society gives out over 15,000 pieces of candy to over 500 kids.  Admission prices are kept low so that families can afford to come and safely trick-or-treat.

We are in need of sponsors and/or donations of candy to hand out to the many trick-or-treaters and their families.  Sponsors are recognized on our Daysheets, social media pages, and website. Each family receives a Daysheet with a map of the Village on it.

Donations can be delivered to the Village on Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm.

To make other arrangements or for more information call 231-843-4808 or email us at admin@mchshistory.org
