South Haven emerged as a commercial shipping center in the 1850s. By the late nineteenth century, lumber, fruit, and other manufactured goods were transported between South Haven, Chicago, and other cities on steam vessels. Commercial shipping peaked in South Haven during the 1930s. In 1932 alone, 56 ships delivered 64,000 net tons of clay and wood pulp to South Haven. During the 1960s, commercial shipping largely ended in South Haven as goods were increasingly shipped via highways.
