One of the earliest houses in the South Haven area, this National Historic Site is the birthplace of the Horticulturalist Dr. Liberty Hyde Bailey. Throughout his life Dr. Bailey worked to make scientific knowledge available to the average gardener. His extensive research, collection and writings on horticulture specific to the small property owner are still a great resource to professional and hobbyist alike. In addition to common items used by the Bailey family, the museum contains a collection of items common to farmsteads in the late 19th and early 20th century, such as tools, furnishings, and children's toys.

The Ambassador Resort in South Haven, now called Carriage House at the Harbor, was built in 1886 by J. F. Crowley for Henry and Ellen Avery as their primary residence. In 1920, it was sold to Lam Kim and became the Lam Wah Inn. There is a framed post card at the Carriage House advertising the Lam Wah Inn that says "running water in every room". I wonder how Mr. Kim would feel about our Jacuzzi's? Philip Kauffman purchased it in 1947 and renamed it the Ambassador Hotel. It was a popular summer hotel into the 1960's when it became a rooming house. After a stint as an adult foster care home it was renovated in 1995 by Joyce and Jay Yelton and renamed the Carriage House at the Harbor. The Yelton's sold the house in 2001 to Linda and Jim Mitte. It changed hands again in 2005 to Victoria and Scott Reinert. The current owners are Suzanne Schloss and David Zeff.
