UNION PIER, MI - COMMUNITY DESCRIPTION
Logging and timber were Harbor Country’s major industries in the 1870s, requiring shipping piers along Lake Michigan’s shoreline. One of those piers, Union Pier, gave its name to today’s quaint lakeshore community, formerly named Townline. Unique, galleries, compliment Union Pier’s corner store, sweet shops, ice cream parlor and grand old resorts that dot the countryside. Many fine bed & breakfasts have been welcoming repeat guests for decades.
