There’s an Auto Graveyard Below the Bluff in St Joseph You Never Knew Existed
The bluff in St Joseph along the shores of Lake Michigan is hiding a decades-old secret.
There's a hidden spot in St Joseph that's the final resting place for hundreds of cars, an effort many years ago to shore-up erosion along the bluff.
The car graveyard is below Lookout Park in St Joseph, along Lakeshore Drive south of Hilltop Road.
YouTube channel RuinRoad visited recently. They relate the story of a neighborhood lost to erosion caused by the building of the piers to channel the St Joseph River and altering the natural interaction between the lake and the mouth of the river. The area they identify as "the Bad Bluff" saw several attempts to shore up the slipping soils including approximately 150 old 1940s vintage cars.
Note there is some mild NSFW language in the video.
