A Ghost Town Draws Us Back
By Sandy Steele
Fayette, Michigan, has stories to tell — of American industry and the toil of its people and the little harbor that protected it all.

Some boating memories remain so powerful that just the mention of a town's name can brings back a flood of emotion. The ghost town of Fayette, Michigan, does that for my family. Cliff and I first heard about the place, and its Snail Shell Harbor in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, 35 years ago, when we were on our annual family boating trip on Lake Green Bay, in Door County, with our children, Scott and Tina. We struck up a conversation with some boaters eager to share their stories about cruising up to historic Fayette, and we got hooked! We'd always teased the kids that we were like water gypsies, because we loved wandering from port to port. So it was an easy decision to chart a compass course the following morning to Fayette, 50 miles north.
As we left Door County's Sister Bay for Michigan's Garden Peninsula in Big Bay De Noc, we passed Washington Island, St. Martin Island, and Little Summer Island to starboard. Out in the open water between the islands is where Lake Green Bay and Lake Michigan merge. Weather changes quickly here, so it's important to carry updated charts, a GPS, a VHF, and two good anchors and to travel these waters in the early morning, before the wind kicks up. We were lucky; the water wasn't too rambunctious for us or our 21-foot Winner. Told to look for tall, majestic limestone bluffs to starboard and a No. 2 red buoy marking the channel once we got into Big Bay De Noc, we kept our eyes peeled.
