    Moose head restored to guv’s summer residence to honor Frank Kelley

    A taxidermy moose head has been restored to its original location hanging in the Michigan governor’s summer residence on Mackinac Island, with the blessing of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, according to the Mackinac Island State Park Commission. 

    The moose head had been a family heirloom of former Attorney General Frank J. Kelley that he donated in 1982 and which had been displayed in the residence until 2012.

    Kelley, who was Michigan’s longest-serving attorney general, died in March at age 96. He had served on the Mackinac Island State Park Commission starting in 1999 and later became chair from 2007-11.

    The moose head was removed during the administration of Gov. Rick Snyder, as it didn’t go with the décor that was envisioned for that room, said commission spokesman Dominick Miller.
