The Saginaw River lighthouse stands about a mile from the mouth of the river. The lighthouse works in conjunction with a beacon closer to the mouth. When sailors in the Saginaw Bay align the two lights they know they are in the channel entering the river. The Saginaw River lighthouse was one of the first lights to use this “range” technique.
The lighthouse has been decommissioned for years and is currently owned by Dow and is surrounded by property owned by the company. Visitors are not permitted to visit the lighthouse except for special occasions like the Tall Ship Celebrations.
Coasties who were stationed at the lighthouse before it was abandoned have said they have heard strange noises while living in the old building. You can read more about the hauntings in my post HERE
