Only fragments remain of a pier that once extended from this point more than 700 feet into Lake Michigan. Rail cars, loaded with limestone from a hopper at the crusher house, ran along the top of the pier about 50 feet above the water. Workers first dumped the limestone into storage bins and then transferred it to waiting company steamships such as the Hennepin and the Topeka. These wooden-slab-sided ships transported stone to company yards in Milwaukee, South Haven, and Muskegon.

A steamship prepares for travel, circa 1900.
