Random Sights Around Ludington, MI

Just a bunch of pictures from Ludington.
 Because of the protected harbor, Ludington was a major point for shipping.  With the demise of the railroad ferries, it is not so much anymore.  I'm not sure what this propellor is from.
 I kind of liked the way this marina was reflecting in the water.  So there is still sort of a shipping industry here.
 Definately liked this one too.
 Kind of a look of downtown Ludington.  The town was originally named after Pere Marquette and later after industrialist James Ludington.  It was incorporated as a city in 1873.  The city was booming as a result of the lumber industry.  In many ways, it could be a microcosm of Michigan.
 The Ludington Post Office.
 The Mason County Courthouse.  Ludington became the Mason County seat in 1873. 
 This courthouse was built in 1893.
 The Ludington Library.  I kind of liked the looks of it.
One last shot of the courthouse.
