Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse is located in Mackinaw City, Michigan. The lighthouse was built in 1890, to serve in the water of the Mackinaac Straits, which connect Lake Michigan and Lake Huron. The cylindrical brick tower, is 40 feet tall, and is attached to the two-story brick keeper's quarters. The design structure is like that of a fort or castle. The brick fog signal building (1907), serves as a visitor center and museum. The lighthouse sits in a park that overlooks the Mackiknac Bridge, and has been inactive since 1957. Picnic tables and lovely surroundings make this lighthouse a great place to spend the day.

***Directions: Take I-75 to exit 336. From this exit follow Nicolet Avenue through Mackinaw City and turn right onto Huron Avenue. The Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse parking area is about two blocks down Huron Avenue.
