Download the Placefinder Card for this marker—it's in triplicate—and then print it out, preferably on card stock (cool color paper welcome!). Just cut the papers into threes (there are printed marks to assist you with this) and distribute the cards to information racks in the area. (And, of course, post some pictures and tag us!)


This site gives one a bit of a sense of the many threads of history weaving through Aywatin gwome. Though Minotsuna Tano and Forrest Bess may have been prominent visitors who made it their home--willingly or unwillingly--there were many other forces at work in the community. New Singapore was just one of the powers centers in the gwome and the Geraldines made them even more fearsome.

You can walk right up to it from the parking lot. Look for the red lighthouse by the SS Keewatin (a huge ship permanently moored in Lake Kalamazoo, on the Douglas side)

Public Dedication

Dedication was near the S.S. Keewatin in Douglas, Michigan, on the shore of Lake Kalamazoo (which is near Saugatuck and where the Kalamazoo River enters Lake Michigan). It is just off Blue Star Highway, just after (going south) you cross the Kalamazoo River [and just before you cross (going north)]. Wonderful turnout.
