Shrine of the Pines in Baldwin

Baldwin’s Shrine of the Pines  is certainly worth a visit. We are in awe of the talent of the late Mr. Raymond W. Overholzer. The complex consists of  a Rustic Furniture Museum, nature trails and gift shop. Walking the nature trails along the Pere Marquette River, you’ll see plenty of birds, deer and turkey among the towering white pines.  In the museum there are hundreds of  handcrafted masterpieces including the world's largest collection of rustic pine furniture. Check out the dining room table with its unique chairs.  The furniture was all handcrafted by the artist from the tree stumps left behind in the 1920's by the logging community.
