Happy Vacation Memories Start Here

F

or 22 years people have been coming to Sweethaven to create vacation memories they will cherish for a lifetime.

With only 5 cottages on 9 wooded acres there is a feeling of spaciousness and tranquility that makes tightly wound grownups sleep like babies. Each cottage has it’s own unique look and location, but all have every amenity needed for a comfortable retreat. The moss-covered paths beckon you to take a walk in the woods. The tree house, horseshoe pit and the volleyball court beg you to come and play. The screened porches, sunny decks and private hot tubs offer serene spots to just sit and rest. And there’s a perfect place for campfires to sprout at the drop of a match. All year long Sweethaven is where beach excursions begin, snowball fights breakout, and hayrides happen.

Preserves & Nature Centers Chikaming Township Park and Nature Preserve, Warren Woods Rd just south and east of where Warren Woods Rd crosses

RIP CURRENTS: are powerful, channeled currents of water flowing away

from shore. They typically extend from the shoreline, through the surf zone, and past the line of breaking waves. Rip Currents can occur at any beach with breaking waves, including the Great Lakes. As waves travel from deep to shallow water, they will break near the shoreline. When waves break strongly in some locations and weakly in others, this can cause circulation cells which are seen as rip currents: narrow, fast-moving belts of water traveling offshore. Safety tips for Rip Currents are provided at all Harbor Country beaches. It cannot be stressed enough that even experienced swimmers can be caught in Rip Currents.

SAFETY: Chikaming and New Buffalo Townships have initiated a safety location system for the Lake Michigan shoreline. There are blue fiberglass markers installed approximately every one tenth of a mile along the shoreline. Blue beach markers start at the 7.8 mile mark and extend to the 14.7 mile mark. These markers are coordinated to the Berrien County 911 system for faster emergency response in the event of a mishap. You can also access the local emergency center on your cell phone by dialing 269-756-1111. 8

The Story of Harbor Country

New Buffalo

W

essel Whittaker was having a miserable day. Bound for Chicago out of Buffalo, NY, Wessel and his crew, aboard the schooner Post Boy, thought the end might be near. A savage November storm in 1834 grabbed control of their vessel and hurtled it onto the Lake Michigan shore. Aground and breaking up, the Post Boy was lost; but Wessel and his crew managed to struggle ashore near the current village of

Grand Beach. The New Yorkers, en route to St. Joseph to report the loss of their ship, came upon a harbor which Whittaker was certain could rival the port of Chicago. Captain Whittaker determined that he would return to the scene of his calamity and found his “New” Buffalo. Our courageous Captain of course, wasn’t the first visitor to New Buffalo. The Miami, Iroquois and Potawatomi Tribes all fought for control of the area. The Native

Americans, the game and fish they cherished, also attracted French traders and missionaries; but it was our Captain who first made New Buffalo into a permanent Galien River Bridge, New Buffalo, 1924. community. Whittaker, along with friends and relatives, returned in 1835 and began to develop and promote their dream. Sawmills were constructed and log buildings for every purpose Buffalo the end of the railroad arose. More settlers arrived line for travelers between Detroit from New York and the South and Chicago. An unprecedented with not dreams, but real hope scale of tourism quickly reshaped and expectations, of riches to the town’s character, hotels, be harvested here. Soon these restaurants and numerous saloons pioneers learned the value of selling whiskey at five cents a pint tourists. opened for business. Land travelers between Detroit Although the railroad continued and Chicago spent their tourist to contribute to the local economy, dollars as they meandered it was not until the 1900s and through New Buffalo. In the late the age of the automobile that 1840s, the Michigan Central New Buffalo truly established its Railroad Company completed the link to tourism. In 1934 the State stretch of tracks between Niles recognized New Buffalo as “The and New Buffalo, making New

Gateway to Michigan” and built a tourist information center here. The current Welcome Center on I-94 is the busiest in Michigan. The dredging of New Buffalo’s harbor began in the 1960s. By 1975, New Buffalo’s safe harbor had become a reality and the new Whittaker Street bridge was dedicated. Not quite a port to equal Chicago’s, Wessel’s harbor was finally complete.

MichianaGrand Beach

U

nlike nearby Harbor Country communities, Michiana and Grand Beach were founded solely as resorts. The Long Beach Development Company began subdividing and building Michiana in the 1920s. A famous Michiana landmark was a Signal

Union Pier, early 1940s.

Oak at the corner of Michiana and Powhattan Drives. Early surveyors marked the tree’s trunk to signal the IndianaMichigan state line. The area that is now Michiana (Michigan side) and Michiana Shores (Indiana side) was originally called Michigan Shores. Stately white gates have welcomed visitors to Grand Beach since the early 1900s. The community’s golf course dates from 1911 and was a huge attraction for Chicagoans who arrived three times a day on the Michigan Central Railroad. Frank Lloyd Wright built homes in Grand Beach, but the village’s most famous architectural offering was the 175-room Golfmore Hotel. Opened in 1921, the Golfmore offered concerts, movies and a huge, at least for the Midwest, ski jump located on a dune behind the hotel. The Golfmore was destroyed in 1939 by a spectacular fire. The Grand Beach Inn was once

Downtown Union Pier, early 1930s.

The Pinewood Lodge and served as the training camp for James Braddock as he prepared for his prize fight with Joe Louis. Perhaps the most famous residents of Grand Beach, are author Father Andrew Greeley and the Mayors Daley of Chicago, who have maintained summer homes in the village for decades.

Union Pier

U

nion Pier was founded on an ethic of hard work without visions of a port to rival Chicago in contrast to Wessel Whittaker’s notion in New Buffalo. There was nature’s bounty to be harvested here. Tree trunks measured five feet and more in diameter. Trees rose 60 feet to the lowest branches. Squirrels, we are assured, ran through the community without ever touching the ground. There clearly was no Sears Tower to be seen on the horizon across the Lake, but everyone in what is now Union Pier understood that timber was the fuel which would fire the growth of Chicago. Boards could be big business, and so, a group of men built a “Pier in Union” at the foot of Berrien St. It was constructed as

a 600-foot edifice jutting into Lake Michigan. A 130-ton schooner was built on the adjacent beach, tracks were laid to Three Oaks and mule-driven cars brought in lumber from sawmills along the route. Soon there were brick and tool handle factories sending their wares to Chicago and beyond. The Chicago Fire of 1871 only increased the demand for Union Pier’s natural bounty, but while Chicago was rebuilt, Union Pier’s pier washed away and a new economy had to be established. In the 1900s, tourism replaced timber, bricks and fishing as Union Pier’s major industry. Union Pier became the United Nations of tourism. Eastern Europeans, African Americans and Jewish vacationers all established homes and resorts in the community. Olympian Jesse Owens had a home here. Chicago Mayor Anton Cermak, ultimately the victim of an assassin’s bullet, brought guests to his summer home by yacht. John Dillinger even stopped for gas at the Prusa Resort service station, which is now the Wine Sellers on Red Arrow Highway. Still, it’s the lake and its sunsets that attract us all.

S

oon after Wessel Whittaker founded New Buffalo, newly arriving pioneers must have thought the village was a bit congested. Perhaps they simply wanted less expensive land. Whatever the reason, the area’s www.harborcountry.org

expansion moved north across the Galien River to what is now Lakeside. As with the other towns developing at the time, one of the first orders of business was to establish a sawmill, but it wasn’t until the 1850s and the arrival of the Wilkinson family that real progress began. The Wilkinsons bought 2,500 acres of land along the lake shore. They focused their energies on the area that is now the intersection of Lakeshore Road and Pier Street. A trading post, boarding house and assorted other enterprises also opened, but the jewel of the village, naturally called Wilkinson, was a 600-footlong pier. The Wilkinson family’s schooner, Enterprise, took lumber and bricks to Chicago and returned with supplies for the nowthriving trading post. Wilkinson Harbert, 1930's was renamed Lakeside in 1874.

As Lakeside was developing, and the current Red Arrow Highway was constructed, the original Wilkinson Trading Post moved from its lake location to its current home on Red Arrow where it was eventually restored as Wilkinson Village and now houses an interesting museum tracing the history of Lakeside. The Lakeside Inn is probably the village’s most historic romantic site, movie stars were wined and dined there. During Prohibition, as the tale goes, Al Capone along with a variety of Chicago

Glavin founded the community in the 1850s, a Chicago industrialist who was instrumental in building the town’s train depot, aced out Glavin when it came to naming the village. Agriculture anchored the Harbert economy, orchards and vineyards were established. All the town’s products were gathered at the Harbert depot, bound for transport to Chicago and Detroit. The community’s most famous visitor and resident was Carl Sandburg who wrote much of his Pulitzer Prize-winning account of Abraham Lincoln at his Harbert home. The Sandburgs lived in Harbert for 15 years. The Prairie Club held their first series of walks in 1908 under the auspices of the Playground Association of Chicago. The walking group and 330 others took their first walk in 1908 to the

with the main street going west/ southwest to Lake Michigan ending at Greenbush Pier. An Ohio judge, Silas Sawyer, grew weary of the courtroom and decided he would join the westward migration in the mid1800s. Recognizing the potential of timber development here, he bought 100 acres in 1862 and, after clearing half of his land, planted it with fruit trees and built his own wood mill. He continued logging the area and hauled his timber on a horsedriven railroad to Fuller Pier, now the site of Warren Dunes State Park. He gained such great prominence that by 1887 the community had been renamed Sawyer Station. The town grew as an agricultural center and eventually established an open air market from which buyers transported their

administrators and faculty members from the University of Chicago. In 1913 the Chikaming Country Club was established in Wilkinson’s lakefront resort known as Pine Bluff Resort and in 1914 the Golf Club was founded. The two closely knit (but separate) entities were united in 1928. A replica of Shakespeare’s birthplace from the International Stock Show was dismantled in Chicago and transported to Lakeside where it became the Country Club’s Shakespeare House.

purchases by train and truck to population centers. In 1885 Sawyer’s main street was named Lake Street. The Post Office/ General Store built by Burwell Hinchmen, Sawyer’s Postmaster (1885-1890 and 1893-1897, became what is now known as the 5888 Building. An Englishman, David Knight, who had come to the area in the 1870s, worked in the store selling general merchandise. Appointed as Sawyer’s Postmaster in 1891 he was one of the first entrepreneurs to take advantage of the region’s mild growing climate; and by 1924 he had established a thriving nursery business which shipped nursery stock across the country. Eventually Silas Sawyer’s Sawmill and Cabinet Shop was replaced by W.J. Zeiger’s hardware store which featured lumber, tile and building materials. Zeiger Lumber and Coal Company developed into the leading supplier and builder of new homes throughout the region. In 1913 Zeiger charged 15 cents for 15 pounds of plaster, 12 cents for four pounds of #20 nails, and $1.25 for a roll of roofing. Today the newly revived hardware and lumber store stands as a testament to the roots of the community. John Flynn, a high profile Chicago union leader, built

Edward Warren shook the hand of President McKinley in 1899 at the Three Oaks train station and heard him eloquently dedicate the Dewey Cannon Monument to the good people of Three Oaks and their contribution to the Spanish-American War. The campaign Warren waged against every other city and village in the nation to raise the most per capita for the war effort and its veterans was yet another victory for a most incredible businessman and benefactor.

the Flynn Palm Tea Room and Soda Grill in the early 1920’s. He expanded the building in 1929 to create the Flynn Theater annex, which showcased live stage productions and current Hollywood movies. The Flynn Building became Sawyer’s most famous and it is said that although John Flynn was viewed Three Oaks was linked to the rest as an upstanding member of the of our current Harbor Country community, he never traveled without his two body Three Oaks depot, 1912 guards.

communities by the timber and bricks shipped to Chicago and other Great Lakes cities, and, of course, there was the railroad. The crews aboard the Central Michigan Railroad passing through the village recognized three oak trees which appeared to be one because of their mass and proximity. Everyone on board recognized the three oaks, as did the local residents and so the village was named. Let’s pick up the course of Mr. Warren. One day he noticed a store clerk fix a broken whale bone corset stay with a turkey feather quill. An industry was born at that moment. Turkey feather quills became garment stays and buggy whips. The Three Oaks economy was booming and the Warren Featherbone Factory still stands proudly in the center of town. The biggest events in Harbor Country occur in Three Oaks every year. The “Oakers” claim they have the biggest Flag Day Parade in the United States, certainly no one will dispute that it’s one great party. The biggest event is the Apple Cider Century bike ride which draws some 7,000 riders from across the country. No buggy whips required.

Founded by Chicagoarea Swedish Baptist and Covenant Churches the area continues to be the home of several private beachfront communities. Bethany Beach community was founded in 1905 and Shorewood Hills was established in 1928. Sawyer is also home to the well-known Tower Hill Camp, founded in the 1920’s by the Congregational Church. The United Church of Christ was built in the late 1880’s and still stands today in downtown Sawyer.

This makes it perfect for supplying your dinner table and local restaurants with fresh ingredients. In our small towns, along Red Arrow Highway and the back roads, you will find farmers’ markets and roadside stands.

The modern mariner’s poetry book, written at sea for those who love the sea.

Original painting: “The Watch” – by Vincent. You may ask, “A watch for what?” And I will answer, “A hurricane.”

Just after daylight, the great battle began. Here it was, like an armored tank. Ice pellets, like daggers, were thrown by the wind, and the boat was pushed toward the bank.

From the poem Hurricane, page 25

Shopping

Shopping in Harbor Country is unusual as there are no “big box stores”. How refreshing. What you will find are hundreds of shops as unique and personal as the owners’ tastes and imagination. The area offers an eclectic mix of high fashion and casual clothing boutiques, home décor and decorating emporiums, unique gift, mementos and keepsakes shops, specialty stores and farmers’ markets with the best of the season’s bounty. Our catch phrase is: “If you can’t find it in Harbor Country, you just haven’t tried hard enough!”

New Buffalo This vibrant town is a center of activity with its public beach, lake and riverside parks, boat launch and marinas. The streets are lined with specialty stores and unique eateries. Its lakefront park is a perfect place to watch the sailboats or a sunset. New Buffalo is home to the New Buffalo Railroad Museum, an Amtrak stop and a Michigan Welcome Center, the busiest in the state. Michiana Known for its quaint log cabins, many of them dating back to the 1920s, this charming community is home to about 200 homeowners. Michiana was one of the last resort areas in the region to be developed because of its dense woods and undisturbed natural wetlands. The village is located on the shores of Lake Michigan and on the Indiana/Michigan state border, hence the name Michiana was given in 1945. Grand Beach Originally a community of Sears and Roebuck cottages, this exclusive resort village on Lake Michigan is home to less than 150 residents. Stately white gates have welcomed visitors to Grand Beach since the early 1900’s and the community’s public golf course dates to 1911. Among the most famous visitors to Grand Beach are author Father Andrew Greeley and the Mayors Daley of Chicago who have maintained vacation homes in the village for decades. Union Pier Named from one of the shipping piers used to transport timber to Chicago, the area’s major industry in the 1870s, this popular resort town has boomed in the recent years. The countryside surrounding this quaint but growing lakeshore community is dotted with unique antique shops, galleries and grand old resorts that have been restored to their former glory.

post, and pier, the town became one of the area’s earliest summer retreats. Red Arrow Highway and its crossroads are home to many antique shops, galleries and specialty stores. An active homeowners’ association sponsors several events during the year and fosters a strong sense of community. Harbert Home to a Swedish bakery that speaks to the Scandinavian founders of this thriving little resort community that was created after the turn of the century. The community’s most famous visitor and resident was Carl Sandburg. Much of Sandburg’s Pulitzer Prize winning account of Abraham Lincoln was written at his Harbert home, where he and his wife lived for 15 years. Today, you’ll encounter out of the ordinary art galleries, antique shops, stores, and charming dining opportunities. Sawyer The site of Warren Dunes, which is one of the state’s largest parks and the most popular with several hundred acres of dunelands, campgrounds and beaches. Sawyer also provides a large travel center just off Interstate 94 which offers weary travelers a safe haven, fuel, food and travel aids. The surrounding area is graced with country vineyards, many antique stores, curio shops and fruit stands. Three Oaks Named for massive oaks that stood near a town rail crossing, the town has become quite a cultural center with its fine arts movie theatre, a live performance theatre that draws much of its talent from Chicago and several artists’ studios and galleries. In addition, the downtown area, with its “turn of the century” buildings, features niche retail, specialty and dining options as well as several parks and museums.
