I visited Point Aux Barques Lighthouse at the tip of the Thumb last summer. It has been a while since I had seen it. I saw the old Life Saving buildings nearby and took some pics. I did not think to much about it at the time but I did not remember them being there when I visited a few years ago.
I came across the pics from last summer and then it reminded me to check into the old USLSS buildings. I thought maybe I was loosing my mind not remembering the old buildings but the were actually moved to their current location a few years ago. The historic buildings built in 1875 were moved in 1960 to the Huron City Museum to save them from demolition. They were recently moved back to the lighthouse and are undergoing renovations to be used as a museum. Only a few stations of the 1875-style were built in the United States and it is wonderful that this one in the Thumb is being saved.
