Sanctuary of the Great Lakes

Woods and water. Fossils and fishing. Sinkholes and stars. Alpena, Michigan’s natural attributes initially shaped its history as a Lake Huron fishing port and lumbering center. After the forests were depleted, limestone for cement production helped the city continue to thrive. Located on Thunder Bay, a natural harbor and port of refuge, the area’s maritime history is accessible at several lighthouses and underwater at the country’s only freshwater marine sanctuary.
