As the City of South Haven's population grew, and with the arrival of steamship and train passengers, a greater need for entertainment became realized. The popular pastime of the day was "bathing" - referred to as "swimming" today - in Lake Michigan. Many activities centered around the water such as fishing from the pier, sun bathing on the beaches, sliding down big slides into the lake, and taking excursions on the river launches.
