History

The Secretary of the Army approved construction of this harbor on March 22, 1948 with local cooperation being furnished by the Michigan State Waterways Commission.

Improvements at that time consisted of a harbor basin protected by two breakwaters and was completed by 1951.

This provided a good shelter for the smaller pleasure craft traveling the shoreline.
