"A Summer Evening on the Canal" A Fundraiser for the Morton House Museum

Event by Morton House Museum

Thu. August 18, 2022 | 5:30pm - 7:00pm

As part of its continuing exploration of the history and life of the Benton Harbor Ship Canal, the Morton House Museum is celebrating a “Summer Evening on the Canal.” This event will take place at “The Brick Sailboat,” the former site of the Robinson Marine Company and now a spectacular private residence. Attendees will be able to tour the space where luxury boats were once built (including one owned by Al Capone) and what is now a dramatic loft-like residential space, including a deck on the canal. The current owner will give a history of the Robinson Marine Company and the story of its transformation into a home. Appetizers, wine, and beer will be served. Proceeds will support the mission of the Morton House Museum to be “The Home of Benton Harbor History.” Parking is available one block west of the venue at the Kinexus building parking lot (499 W. Main)
