Eagle Harbor Life Saving Station
The Museum has a glass enclosed viewing area inside the restored Life-Saving Station boathouse. It has one display about the Eagle Harbor station's most famous rescue, the 1913 wreck of the steamer L. C. Waldo. The Waldo was wrecked in a November storm off Keweenaw Point. Nine Eagle Harbor rescuers were awarded the Life-Saving Service's highest honor, the Gold Medal, for their heroic role in assisting in the rescue of 24 souls and one dog from the Waldo. Another display uses a collection of memorabilia to discuss the Marshall family which served both the Portage and Eagle Harbor Life Saving Stations.
Open from mid-June to mid-October daily from 9 am to 6 pm.
