The Betsie Collection

The “Bedford China” pieces (right) are authentic to Point Betsie with confirmed links to the Lighthouse. Some Point Betsie family members have occasionally donated personal and U.S. Coast Guard heirlooms to the Point Betsie collection for everyone to enjoy. This set is a fine example of 18th Century China that is now a reminder of Captain Edwin Bedford’s time in service from January 1908 to an undocumented month in 1918.
