Mary's City of David was nominated by the Michigan State Historic Preservation Office in 2008 and received the official Listing upon the National Register of Historic Places in America from the Department of the Interior in Washington on April 15, 2009. The Listing is for 140 acres and 81 structures as an "Historic District" and is the result of 19 years of restorations to the historic properties.
The museum, tours and events at Mary's City of David is located on the Historic Properties of the reorganization of the Israelite House of David 1930, and is today America's third oldest Christian communal society. The museum holds the most complete record of the 208-year history (picture/document/artifact). The guided walking tours take you through sites on the 300 acres that tell this unique story which include the famous Eastman Springs developed in the 1880's.
The gift shop next door to the museum has a wide variety of gifts and collectibles only to be found at the colony.
