  • A great piece of the great lake lighthouses.
  • 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.
  • Well kept, with camping.
  • Great view, very nice museum and staff. Lots of history to learn.
