    National Lakeshore Michigan

40th Anniversary in 2006

Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore celebrates 40 years in 2006.

Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2006. On October 15, 1966, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed legislation to create Pictured Rocks as America's first National Lakeshore.
