Elberta, Michigan

Elberta, Michigan  

Elberta is located on Lake Michigan in Benzie County across the harbor from the city of Frankfort in Crystal Lake Township. This city was originally called South Frankfort until 1911, when it was re-named after the Elberta Peach which grew plentifully in the area. Historically, Elberta was known for hosting ferry service to Wisconsin. One of the old ships, the "City of Milwaukee," still sits in the harbor. Elberta’s Lake Michigan coastline offers rugged beauty as well as a good view of Frankfort and the Coast Guard station across the channel. A few block’s drive to the shoreline from the ferry is well worth the effort to enjoy this picturesque location, allowing one to take in both the observation point on top of the hill as well as the recreation area along the beach below.
