Whitefish Point Lighthouse, was established in 1848. Its masonry tower gave way to an iron-skeleton structure shortly before the Civil War. Braced by a network of iron supports, the tower's central steel cylinder is more than 80 feet tall and topped by a metal lantern.

The lighthouse was automated in 1970, and now serves as home to the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum.

***Directions: The lighthouse and museum, housed in the former keeper's residence, can be reached from the Mackinac Bridge by taking I-75 north to M-123 and the town of Paradise. From Paradise follow Wire Road to Whitefish Point. For further information, call (906) 635-1742.
