Portside Art Fair
& Elm Point Historical Museum

At the point where Monroe Creek winds its way to the South Arm of Lake Charlevoix stands a lovely park. Elm Pointe, the original site of a pioneer homestead, later became an estate consisting of eleven acres, a residence and lodge. This estate was granted to the City of East Jordan by owners Dr. and Mrs. George Westgate, on June 30, 1972; and gratefully accepted by the city “on the basis that all said property shall be used and devoted exclusively for public purposes.” In 1999, Elm Pointe was designed as a Michigan Historic Site.
