Glen Haven General Store

The Glen Haven General Store is operated by America’s National Parks and appears much as it did during the 1920’s and features typical general store merchandise and items related to the history of the Glen Haven area including kitchenware, food, toys, maritime items and books.

Cannery Boathouse

The cannery was first built as a warehouse and converted to a state-of-the-art cannery for cherries in the early 1920s. In recent years, the Cannery has housed a museum of historic boats used around Glen Haven and the Manitou Islands. Volunteers have donated many hours to restoring the boats and operating the exhibit. The Cannery Boathouse Museum is the largest public exhibit of Great Lakes small craft.

Blacksmith Shop

A fully restored 1920’s blacksmith shop provides demonstrations of transforming bars of iron into beautiful, useful items. Watch the blacksmith take a piece of iron, heat it in the forge and pound out useful shapes and parts. The exhibit is very interactive, so feel free to ask questions. You can see some of the parts they have made in the shop and ask the blacksmith questions about his trade or the history of the local area. While you are watching, you will learn about D. H. Day and his role in developing the Glen Haven
