Eagle Harbor in Keweenaw County, Michigan — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
Riveted Bell Buoy
The bell can be heard when foggy conditions occur to alert approaching vessels of the ever present danger. This buoy was donated to the Society by the U.S. Coast Guard and was transported to Eagle Harbor on the "Sundew" in August 1983. It took heavy equipment to place this buoy. The Society hopes to acquire a bell to make the display complete.
