Long Description:
The birdhouse is modeled after the US Army Corps of Engineers Castle Insignia. It is located at the US Army Corps of Engineers Area Office on the Grand River in Grand Haven.
“Strength, pride, heraldry, prestige, and honor. The castle remains the premier symbol of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The medieval castle is inseparably connected with fortifications and architecture. In heraldry, the castle and the tower are often used on coats of arms. In this country the term “castle” has been applied to the strongest of our early fortifications such as Castle Pickney in Charleston, South Carolina, and Castles Williams and Clinton in New York Harbor.”
