If you go through Ephraim, you will pass the Anderson Dock on the north end of the village.  In the late 1850’s, the Anderson Brothers built the dock.  The dock became a port for steamships.  Due to the treacherous waters of Lake Michigan, sailors that reached the dock started carving their names and their boats on the building.  The sailor’s tradition continues today with tourist adding their names too.  Chalk is available for you to add your name when you visit the Anderson Dock.
