Walk of Coast Guard History

August 1, 2014
12:00 PM / 01:00 PM
Grand Haven City Hall

Each year the Grand Haven Coast Guard Festival recognizes a point of Coast Guard history and a
more local or regional point to add to the streets of COAST GUARD CITY, U.S.A. in the “Walk of Coast Guard History”.

The Walk of Coast Guard History was started in 2006 when two "Points of Coast Guard History" were designed, prepared, and installed in the walkway at the approach to Grand Haven City Hall. The concept for this new event was quite simple, integrating the long and prestigious history of the United States Coast Guard in Grand Haven and around the world, with the celebration of the men and women of the United States Coast Guard.

The Points of History are chosen by the Grand Haven Coast Guard Festival and submitted for approval to the City of Grand Haven. Once approved, the plaques are prepared (generously sponsored for years by locally owned and operated DAKE Corporation, a JSJ company) in brass, and a 15-inch Coast Guard seal is added over the engraved point.

The City of Grand Haven prepares the setting and installs the newest points on the sidewalks of Coast Guard City, U.S.A.
