New Buffalo Travel Guide: 8 reviews and 30 photos

1834: Captain Wessel D. Whittaker’s ship Post Boy runs aground near present-day Grand Beach and is destroyed. On his way north to St. Joseph to report the loss, he first views the place where the Galien River empties into Lake Michigan, and envisions a harbor to rival his home port of Buffalo, New York. He promptly goes to Kalamazoo to buy land at this spot.
