BENTON HARBOR/ST. JOSEPH
Home to our Global Headquarters, Whirlpool Corporation has been here since 1911.
While known today as the twin to its more resort-town sister, St. Joseph, Benton Harbor has strong roots to an agricultural past and is fulfilling a promising future as an arts and shopping district. In the 1930’s, the Benton Harbor Fruit Market was the largest cash-to-grower non-citrus fruit market in the world. This heritage is reflected in the Blossomtime Festival, the oldest multi-community festival in Michigan.
St. Joseph is carefully nestled on the southern tip of what has been termed “The Riviera of the Midwest.” This deep water port town is a growing resort community – part of a “small town” chain stretching from the state line in a spectacular arc along Lake Michigan. The lake shore is peppered with remarkable sand dune formations and lined further inland with a lush countryside that produces some of the nation’s finest orchards and vineyards.
