Coho Capital
Honor was named after the daughter of an official of the Guelph Patent Cask Company, which established the settlement in 1895. Honor was a major logging town and incorporated as a village in 1914.

Honor Michigan is located in a beautiful river valley along a top-notch Trout Stream called the Platte River. Each year during the month of August, this sleepy little town comes alive to host the " National Coho Festival" honoring the 'salmon run' along the first river that began salmon fishing in Michigan. Honor is known as the Coho Capital because each year Coho Salmon make their way back up River, back to their birthplace, the Platte River State Fish Hatchery just outside of town.

Honor has the only Drive-In Theater left in Northern Michigan and because of its close proximity, is considered a gateway to the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.
