David Henry Day was chosen by the President of the Northern Transit Company, a steamship company that shipped cargo on the Great Lakes, to oversee the operations in Glen Haven. In the 1880s D.H. Day built this farm which now stands in the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. The farm, comprised of 400 acres, and was also known as “Oswegatchi” after the New York community where his father was born. Day grew hay and corn to feed his 400 hogs and prize herd of 200 Holsteins.
The barn is probably the most famous barn in Michigan and likely the most photographed barn in the state. I have not seen many photos of the house, but I think its a beautiful old farmhouse. It’s privately owned and I am not sure what the plans are for its future. I figured I would share a pic of the old house since it seems forgotten about next to the historic and restored barn.
