It’s been a long dreary and gray winter in Michigan and I am looking forward to the warm sunshine of summer. A few years ago I took this photo of the Manistee North Pierhead Light. The cast Iron light was built in 1927 and getting a little rusty, but last summer restoration has begun to shine up the old light. I guess I will have to make another trip to Manistee and see the light with its new paint job.
The first lighthouse built in Manistee was destroyed by the great fire of October 8th, 1871 that also ravaged the town of Manistee and most of the thumb. October the 8th, 1871 was the same day Mr’s O’Leary’s cow kicked over a lantern starting the great Chicago Fire.
