Since its incorporation, Michigan City has appreciated its lakefront assets. The point at which Trail Creek collides with Lake Michigan has always been a source of pride for the city's residents. However, it was not until 1959 that an agency was created to protect and maintain the city's interests at the lakefront. Michigan City Marinas chronicles the agency's efforts to realize the potential of one of Lake Michigan's most magnificent ports. The people, events, and other government agencies that helped shape the future of the marinas are explored along with the Michigan City Port Authority's tenacious oversight of the resources and facilities that are still in use today.
