Algoma erects new Christmas tree sculpture on lakefront

You will be able to see a new addition to the Algoma waterfront harbor this fall.  A Christmas tree sculpture was erected this week at the Christmas Tree Ship Point.  Algoma Parks and Recreation  Director Sara Robertson says the steel structure was made by Shawn Olson and donated by Bruce and Chris Steinhagen and it is a perfect addition to the rich maritime history of Algoma.  She shares the story of the Christmas tree schooners that delivered trees to Milwaukee and Chicago more than one hundred years ago.

 

 

Robertson adds the harsh environment prevented any real trees from growing in the area of Christmas Tree Ship Point.  Plans are being made for a special ceremony after benches and a sign is placed near the new Christmas tree sculpture.
