A “FUN” SISTER BAY FACT. . .
Did you know that the ship’s mast displayed on the shore where Helm’s Resort once stood, (now known as Waterfront Park), was salvaged from the USS PLEIADES, a ship that was once part of Aristotle Onassis’ fleet of 70 ships?
Helmuth Zielke, who owned Helm’s Resort, actually bought the mast from a salvage company in Sturgeon Bay and erected it on the property. The gaff-rigged flag pole was added to the mast sometime prior to 1986, and the folks at Helm’s always made sure that flags were flown from that pole. Of course, the American flag always adorned the top, and once upon a time the national flag of every guest who was staying at the resort as well as the national flags of all their employees’ home countries were displayed. At one time there were over 40 national flags proudly waving in the breeze in Sister Bay! That must have been a pretty awesome sight to see. . .
