Village of Harbert

Lakeshore Town

Scandinavian families created a thriving resort community after the turn of the century in pretty little Harbert. Poet Carl Sandburg enjoyed many Harbor Country summers there and it is said much of Sandburg’s Pulitzer Prize winning account of Abraham Lincoln was written at his Harbert home. Beyond Harberts pristine and quiet Lake Michigan beaches with rolling forested dunes, you will find a Swedish bakery and a few small antique shops, quaint dining spots and that is just about all there is to this small lakeshore town. The local residents like it just fine that way and intend to preserve its small town flavor and charm. No theme parks, malls, parking lots or traffic jams for them, thank you.
