Sleeping Bear Dunes National LakeshoreMore then fifty ships have wrecked along this stretch of Lake Michigan. These buildings housed the men of the United States Life Saving Service who guarded this hazardous shore. Equipped with line throwing cannons and rowing life boats, they stood ready to help ships in distress. Still, the most important life saving tool was the skill, courage and dedication of the men and women who live here.
