The five photographs show some of what we saw here.
The people who work here are so enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and helpful. We had several conversations with two different men. We discovered the role of the Friends Good Will's role in the War of 1812; learned about the restored collection of the last 3 types of wooden rescue craft used by the United States Coast Guard; became acquainted with the 46 Coast Guard Stations built on Michigan shores.
It was a beautiful day, and we enjoyed our self-guided tour along the historic South Haven harbor. There were historic markers which we read that were placed along the Black River.
Address: 260 Dyckman Avenue, South Haven, MI 49090
