In a recent GLSHS Board Meeting, the decision was made to close the popular Crew’s Quarters at Whitefish Point indefinitely, and use the structure for staff housing. The recommendation was made by management, and approved unanimously by the GLSHS Board of Directors. While not an easy decision, the combination of the pandemic and the need for staff to operate the National Historic Site/museum ultimately led to this change in role for the 1923 building. Interestingly enough, when the Crew’s Quarters was first brought back to Whitefish Point in the 1990’s, it was used as staff housing. We are sorry if this causes any inconvenience, but there are many comfortable hotel/motel/cabin options in the Paradise, Sault Ste. Marie and Newberry areas.
