This harbor town of Northport, at the tip of Michigan's Leelanau Peninsula, is special in many ways. From the beautiful shores of Lake Michigan to the amazing fireworks show put on every Fourth of July, this picturesque place continues to please inhabitants and seasonal visitors alike.

      Did you know the Native American settlement of Waukazooville came before the platted Village of Northport? How did the people get here?  How did the people make a living? Answering these questions and preserving our history is the work of Northport Area Heritage Museum. If you have a chance to visit beautiful Northport, please stop by our wonderful museum.
