Ship House

This is not just a house that looks like a ship…..Its actually part of a ship that has been lifted onto a cliff overlooking a lake.

The ship was called the Benson Ford, owned by the Ford Motor company, it was used to transport iron ore and coal through the Great Lakes to the Ford Factory in Detroit.

After 50 years service the ship was cut up and this section of the bow was installed in South Bass Island.

To find out more about this house see the shiponthebay website where you will find more photographs.
