Lighthouses in the Area
The Huron Island Lighthouse, built on West Huron Island in 1868, is located three miles off of the Michigan coast in Lake Superior. The island is one of several that make up Huron National Wildlife Refuge.
Granite Island’s location approximately twelve-and-a-half miles to the northeast represented a major threat to vessels.
The Big Bay lighthouse stands on a rocky point halfway between Marquette and the Keweenaw Portage Entry.
Located at the end of a rugged stone breakwater at Marquette’s Presque Isle Park, the red beacon still guides ships day and night into the railroad ore docks.
The Marquette Lighthouse is located on an active U.S. Coast Guard Base and therefore there is no public access to the Lighthouse except through a tour from the Maritime Museum.
