This old shack is one of a few buildings that stand at Vermillion Point. The buildings were used by the U.S. Life Saving Service. They sit along Lake Superior west of the Whitefish Point Lighthouse and the men stationed at them would rescue sailors in distress. They were abandoned decades ago but have been slowly restored and the area is now part of a nature preserve. If you are looking for a bit of an adventure a trip down a sandy road will take you to this out-of-the-way place that most tourists don’t know about. It is also a great place to go rock hunting along the shoreline. The history and directions to this unique place can be found in Volume 4 of my Lost In Michigan books.
