DescriptionThe Ontonagon West Pierhead Light sits near the end of a pier on the west side of the mouth of the Ontonogon River about 350 yards or so from the now inactive Ontonagon lighthouse. The lantern room is atop a 20 foot skeletal steel tower and serves to guide ships entering Ontonagon Harbor.
