Silver Lake, Hart, Mears, and the greater Oceana County area is a place steeped in history and culture. Originally built on the lumber trade, the area also played an important role in the Great Lakes shipping trade with the presence of the Little Point Sable Lighthouse that still exists right here on our shore. While you’re visiting, be sure to tour our unique historical landmarks and explore our museums to learn more of the interesting history of the area.
Art is also highly revered in the Silver Lake area with the beautiful natural surroundings serving as inspiration for artists of all mediums. There are several small, independent artist galleries within a short drive from Silver Lake where works of art can be viewed and purchased as keepsakes.
