For a number of years the Teaching & Sharing Centers helped to make the voyageur encampment, which had been a part of Fall Color Cruise & Island Festival in Grand Ledge since 1990, happen. When others decided to cease their participation in the event in 2005, Kenn Kuester became the driving force to continue the encampment with the T&SC taking the lead role by forming Michigan Living History Encampment as a DBA of the non-profit organization. The name eventually was changed to Michigan Living History Encounters when it was decided to expand beyond the fur trader period into the 1800s, and MLHE became its own branch within the T&SC. American Living History Encounters was added as a DBA after several years to allow for expansion beyond Michigan history.
