Graced by the natural beauty of these soaring sandstone ledges, Grand Ledge was once famous for its Seven Islands Resort, a recreation area centered on this island from 1870 to 1910. At the turn of the century, the ledges made this city one of the most popular resort areas in lower Michigan. Excursion trains brought thousands to enjoy this area which featured steamboat rides, a boat livery, a hotel and vaudeville theater, mineral wells, a roller coaster and fishing. In 1976 the Grand Ledge Bicentennial Commission erected a band pavilion.
