Boat, U.P. site added to list of historic places
LANSING, MI (AP)-- The U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Bramble and four other Michigan entities have been added to the National Register of Historic Places.
The Bramble is significant because it's one of the first American vessels to successfully circumnavigate the North American continent through the Northwest Passage. It was decommissioned in 2003 and is moored in Port Huron.
The other additions announced Monday by the state include the Eagle Harbor Coast Guard station boathouse in Keweenaw County, the Hamtramck Stadium site that was a home for Negro Leagues baseball, and the Island City Historic District in Eaton Rapids.
Eight additional properties in Michigan were recently nominated to the National Register by the state Historic Preservation Review Board.
