    Fruitport Michigan History Pomona Park

    In 1871, mineral spring water was the latest rage. Resorts popped up all over the country capitalizing on the curative benefits of magnetic mineral water. The Pomona House opened July 1st of that year. Rich patrons would take a steamer from Chicago to Grand Haven and then travel on to Fruitport. Built by the Fruitport Magnetic and Sulphur Springs Company for $500,000, the hotel was burned down twice. After it burned down in 1881, it was never rebuilt.

    I'm amazed how much is in this park. It's been hit pretty hard but I've always managed to walk away with something. I think the pavilion area would be sweet. I checked it out earlier this summer and it has a solid bottom for wading.
