Grand Haven, Ottawa County, Michigan, USA



 


Notes: Grand Haven is a city in the U.S. state of Michigan and is the county seat of Ottawa County6. The city is located on Lake Michigan at the mouth of the Grand River, for which it is named. As of the 2000 census, Grand Haven population was 11,168. The city is located just north of Grand Haven Charter Township but is politically independent.
History
The city dates its founding to a fur-trading outpost first started by Madeline La Framboise and her husband (which was later taken over by the American Fur Company) called Gabagouache and dating back to at least 1809, although the Ottawa lived in the area much earlier as the river was a major Native American trade route into the interior of Michigan. The city was first called "Grand Haven" in 1835 and the community was incorporated as a city in 1867. The first permanent resident was Presbyterian minister William Ferry, who founded the first area church. Ferry is also the founder of the neighboring town of Ferrysburg. The second church opened 16 years later in 1850. Ferry began the first bank in 1851. Ferry also started a school Ferry Elementary and it is running to this day. Grand Haven developed into a logging, lumber mill and shipping area.
The former Grand Trunk Railway on the waterfront near the river is now a historical museum. The Story and Clark Piano Company built pianos in the city from 1900-1984. The smokestack at the piano factory collapsed in 1998 due to extremely severe weather. The oldest operating business in the city is the Eagle-Ottawa Leather Co. which traces its origin back to the Sheldon Tannery founded in 1838. In August of 2006, Eagle-Ottawa announced it would close all Grand Haven operations in October.
The Grand Haven Lighthouses were first built in 1839 on the south pier marking the channel into the river. The current lighthouses, painted red, were built in 1875 (outer light) and 1905 (inner). They are connected by a lighted catwalk which runs along the pier to the shore.
