The Forest House was the first hotel in South Haven. It was built in 1853. The basic structure still stands on Center Street.

HASH invites you to the Forest House

HASH volunteers are in the process of restoring this historic building. A large task, but after the Hartman School renovation, as well as the extensive restoration of the South Pier Light, they are used to it and getting pretty good at it.
