  • Located across from Mount Baldhead, it has beautiful gardens overlooking the Kalamazoo River. This year's new exhibit is titled "Cold War | Hot Towns" and introduces Saugatuck in the 1950's, 60's and 70's. The exhibit shows the origins of the radar tower sitting atop of Mount Baldhead, and the stories of people who lived through the wild weekends that shut the town down. Admission is free, but donations are gratefully accepted. You don't want to miss this gem on the river.
