Historical Context
Grand Haven has been a popular leisure destination since the late 1800s, as the lumber industry brought business to the area and sparked its settlement. In 1915, Congress established the Coast Guard in Grand Haven, and within ten years the Coast Guard festival was created. This event still draws in a huge crowd every year.
