Historic Manistee, The Victorian Port CityThe last firm to service the Manistee passenger and package freight business was the Pere Marquette Line Steamers. The companies engaged in this business required extensive dockside facilities to service their clientele. These facilities lined up along the south side of the river below the Maple Street bridge: First was a feed and grain warehouse, then a warehouse used by the Nessen Transportation Company, east of Pine Street was the warehouse of the Pere Marquette Line Steamers, and just to the west, the warehouse of the Northern Michigan Transportation Company. These facilities offered ample warehouse space for package and other freight, ticket and freight offices, and even waiting rooms.
