This brick house with white siding faces the channel into the West Bay harbor at Grand Marais. It was built in 1906 for the lightkeeper that maintains the light for the channel. It replaced a shack made out of scrap lumber that was described as “a miserable shanty” by the lighthouse inspector. The Coast Guard took over the house in World War II and used it until 1982. two years later the Grand Marais Historical Society converted the home into a museum which it currently operates to the present day.
