Cyrstal Lake Art Center

Frankfort, Michigan

Coast Guard Road

Frankfort’s historic U.S. Coast Guard Station is well situated to provide safety and security to parts of Lake Michigan. It is also well situated to provide a park for the city of Frankfort. Thanks to a Federal Lands to Parks transfer to the city, the Crystal Lake Arts Center can turn this unused structure into their new Center for the Arts. The center renovated the building using historic preservation guidelines and LEED green-building standards to reuse it as a recreational and cultural center for the community. Located on Betsie Bay, the building will provide art classes and exhibition space.
