SOUTH HAVEN, Mich. (AP) -

A new exhibit at a southwestern Michigan museum takes a look at the history of the area's fruit industry.

The Herald-Palladium of St. Joseph reports "Fruits of their Labors: The Story of Four Pomologists and South Haven Fruit" opens Friday at Liberty Hyde Bailey Museum in South Haven and runs through Sept. 24.

The exhibit traces the history of South Haven's early apple, peach and blueberry industry. It includes photos of the early days of South Haven and artifacts. The exhibit also explores the story of the South Haven Experiment Station, founded by orchard owner and scientist T.T. Lyon.

Other upcoming events at the museum include a series of free, outdoor "Brown Bag Botany" programs. And there will be a series of children's outdoor classes.
