Ludington lies on the shores of Lake Michigan on the western edge of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula. It is a small city with a population of just over 8,200 residents, and it is the county seat of Mason County. The city was named after James Ludington, who began a logging operation around which the town was eventually built. The timber was shipped out of the Port of Ludington, which became an important link for the rail lines, shipping freight and ferries between Michigan and Manitowoc, Wisconsin. Today, only one operating ferry remains.
The crime rate in Ludington is about the same as the national average. There are 69 registered sex offenders living in Ludington, making the ratio of number of residents in Ludington to the number of sex offenders a somewhat high 119 to one.
