CONSTRUCTED: Circa 1890s

G. Davis made his first purchase of land for Red Park from Charles Secor in the 1890s and it was coined as a “Delightful Resort.” The park was the second resort subdivision platted in Onekama Township.

Red Park eventually became a summer resort area for many wealthy Manistee lumbermen and businessmen. The park area would go on to feature a pavilion, a bandstand, ornamental flower planters and beds, fountains, mineral springs, lamp posts, a restaurant and a store.

Today, this land contains many historic structures, many have been restored to their original quality at the time of construction.
