When the lakes freeze over and the ships no longer sail the waters of the Great Lakes, the lighthouses still stand vigilant along the shoreline. For the lighthouse keepers and their families, it must have been a lonely winter, especially at the lighthouses that are miles away from any town. This is the new Presque Isle lighthouse, It’s called new because the old Presque Isle lighthouse stands a few miles away. The old one was not tall enough and the one that replaced it is one of the tallest on the Great Lakes. It is the tallest Lighthouse tower in Michigan open to the public.
If you love lighthouses I hope you will take a look at my new Lighthouse book HERE
