From 1923 to 1970, William C. Greany, "the Major," was scoutmaster of the Detroit Area Council Troop 194.
In 1983 he was appointed Special Eagle Scout Administrator of Mackinac Island Scout Service Camp and for thirty years played a significant role in developing the summer program.
He wrote the Mackinac Manual, that remains a basic guide for troops serving at Mackinac.
After 50 years of continuous service, the scouts of Troop 194, built this gathering place in his honor. It is a place of celebration, meditation, and memories for all scouts serving the park.
