Sand Point/Munising USCG Station CLR/EA and HSR
The National Park Service (NPS) has prepared a Cultural Landscape Report and associated Environmental Assessment (CLR/EA) to support management decisions on treatment and use of above ground cultural resources for the Munising (Sand Point) U.S. Coast Guard Life Saving Station at Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore is in the north-central section of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan along the south shore of Lake Superior. The Michigan State Historic Preservation Office determined in 1999 that the station is eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. The study area consists of the estimated 10 to 15 acres included in the historic U.S. Coast Guard station boundary.
The goal of this project is to prepare critical planning and design documents to guide the ultimate treatment for the structures and cultural landscape. The CLR/EA will serve as record of the history of the property - including pre-USCG, USCG, and NPS occupation - and provide documentation and analysis to guide the long-term care of the site. The end result will be cohesive treatment of the buildings and landscape that supports the operational and visitor use(s).
