The Bramble in Port Huron
The Coast Guard ship Bramble is currently being considered by the Michigan State Preservation Review Board as a possible candidate for National Register of Historic Places. It was commissioned in 1944 and has been one of only 3 coast guard ships that have sailed entirely around North America, having traversed the infamous Northwest Passage in 1957. The 4500 mile trip took over two months to complete. The ship is owned by the Port Huron Museum and it used to be open for tours, but lacking funds, the museum is seeking other means of support.
