Biographical Info

The Nautical City is a quaint port town with charming streets, a beautiful harbor, and two distinguished museums. Spend an afternoon strolling the streets and grab a gourmet coffee before heading back to Alpena for the night.

Presque Isle County Historical Museum is one of the best small museums in Michigan.  Under the direction of Curator Mark Thompson, the museum has received recognition from many sources, including the State of Michigan Historical Society.  The museum is in the process of expanding.  The current location is at 276 West Michigan Avenue, Rogers City, MI 49779.  This is the site of the Bradley House–home of Carl D. Bradley, the founder of the Limestone Quarry and the Bradley fleet of Great Lakes freighters.  The museum has acquired an adjoining property, located at 185 West Michigan.  This location is under development, and it is planned to be open soon.

The Great Lakes Lore Maritime Museum is located at 367 North Third Street, Roger’s City, MI 49779.  Under the direction of David Erickson, the Lore museum contains many nautical artifacts and detailed biographical records of the many sailors who have perished on the Great Lakes.

Both museums are must see destinations for everyone who visits Roger’s City.
