When South Haven became an incorporated town in 1869, it was a tiny but prosperous village with a bustling economy. Lake Michigan provided robust fishing, lumbering, shipping and fruit industries and the downtown business district grew quickly.

Over the decades, the retail district has evolved into a thriving shopping and tourist destination and although it is firmly vested in the 21st century, its architecture retains glimpses into the city's rich heritage.
