Crescent Beach WPA StairsAlgoma Record Herald photo.
The WPA constructed stairs at the south end of Crescent Beach. The stairs display “19 WPA 39” on the top step and bottom slab along with 48 star stone mosaic U.S. flags. The stairs are edged with field stone. Fossils are mounted on the entrance pillars. The stairs begin at the top of a grassy bluff and end in a cedar lined path that leads to the sandy shore of Lake Michigan.
