    We really enjoy this lighthouse and the museum, it has a great staff that was very nice to talk to about the history of the area. There is a lot on display in the old Keeper's house and a lot about the local shipwrecks.

    Great Old Light House , That was built in 1857 under President Polk's orders to guard ships from some of the most treacherous shoals in the Great Lakes.
