The U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Bramble and six other Michigan entities have been approved by the State Historic Preservation Review Board for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places.
The Bramble is significant because it's one of the first American vessels to successfully circumnavigate the North American continent through the Northwest Passage. It was decommissioned in 2003 and remains moored in Port Huron.
The six other nominees to the register are the Island City Historic District in Eaton Rapids, the Upper Twin Falls Bridge in Dickinson County's Breitung Township, the J.J. Deal and Son Carriage Factory in Jonesville, the Center Avenue Neighborhood Historic District in Bay City, the Joseph Campau Street Historic District in Hamtramck and the Grand Circus Park Historic District in Detroit.
