At the 40 Mile Point Lighthouse is a strange looking building with the name Calcite proudly displayed on the roof. It was the pilot house from the 436 foot long S.S. Calcite. At the time of its construction in 1912, it was the longest self-unloader on the Great Lakes. Its home port was Rogers City a few miles south of the lighthouse. When the freighter was sent to Ohio to be scrapped the pilot house was removed and saved. The historic pilot house was moved to 40 Mile Point Lighthouse Park in the mid 90s and restored. If you are near Rogers City be sure to check it out along with the lighthouse.
