    I may be confusing a ferry with museums in my mind, but I thought Frank
    had mentioned a maritime museum in your neck of the woods.
    That being said, there is a maritime museum in South Haven, Michigan.
    The public structures are quite modest but make for an interesting
    afternoon. Nonetheless, they may have a treasure trove of resources not
    on display.
