After World War II, the Shepler family launched a ferry business on Mackinac Island. They operated a small vessel known as “Miss Margy,” for tourist excursions to the island.
Shepler’s ferry was a beloved attraction until it was replaced by the Mackinac Bridge in 1958.

Their commitment to offering top-class, efficient ferry service still stands today.
