Description
Located about 23 miles NW of Marquette Michigan, this lighthouse sits on top of a bluff 100 feet above Lake Superior. It is one of two bed and breakfast inns in the state. A small automated beacon in the yard is used as a navagational signal. The original fresnel lens is on display in the fog house.
