Description
Active. This is the only candy cane striped lighthouse on the Great Lakes. Its giant red and white markings can be recoginized from many miles away. This tower was erected in 1910 to replace the lightship, and made the Waugoshance light obsolete, thus giving that station's crew a chance to vacate and escape the ghost of John Herman.
