The Harbor Springs Area Historical Society is pleased to once again present Shay Days, a celebration of inventor Ephraim Shay and his contributions to the community. In addition to his geared locomotive that made him famous, Ephraim Shay (1839-1916) designed and built the Harbor Springs Water Works, a stamped-steel building called the Hexagon House and a steel yacht called the Aha.

Live steam trains, electric trains, walking tours, tours of the Shay House and more are in store during this family-friendly event marking the 175th anniversary of the inventor's birthday.
