Toft Point Boathouse - #0714

boat house

The boathouse is one of the remaining buildings of the Thomas Toft estate. The original 325 acres of the 1870's abandoned stone quarry with its old-growth northern and boreal forest contain the largest continuous stand of old-growth (virgin) white pine on the entire western shore of Lake Michigan. One such pine, blown over in a storm, was dated at over 400 years old. Now the Toft Point Natural Area, at its present 743 acres, is managed by the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. The morning fog is “burning off” of the outer point as two Bald Eagles soar above Moon Light Bay, known as Mud Bay in Toft’s day.
