LUDINGTON, Mich. (AP) - A Ludington-based car ferry has received a national historic landmark plaque.

The Ludington Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/1s2Blgl ) that Lake Michigan Carferry was awarded plaques for the SS Badger at a Thursday morning ceremony.

The 410-foot-long Badger once hauled rail cars across Lake Michigan. It was later converted to a car and passenger ferry and now makes daily trips between Ludington and Manitowoc, Wisconsin, from mid-May through mid-October.

It is the last Great Lakes car ferry still in operation.

The U.S. Department of the Interior announced the historic designation earlier this year.
