This pale yellow building in the historic village of Glen Haven is (or was) the Sleeping Bear Inn. It was constructed in 1857 and used as a boarding house for local dock workers and Lumberjacks. The town was a popular spot for passing steamers to get firewood to fuel the boilers. In the late 1800s, as tourism to the area increased, it changed over to become a resort hotel for people looking to take in the beauty of the dunes. By the 1970s the building and town had declined and closed. The inn along with the rest of the town is now part of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.
