This historic red light stands at the end of the Menominee North Pier. At one time it had a catwalk that went out to it but that has been removed when the light was automated in the 1970s. The Menomonee River is the border between Michigan and Wisconson. If the light was on the other side of the river Michigan would have one less lighthouse.
I took this pic a few years ago and did not stay in the town of Menominee long. It seemed like a really nice town and a great place to explore. I hope to get back there soon. It is a long ways south of US-2 and especially a long drive from the Lower Peninsula. I have a feeling that the next time I visit it will be after taking the S.S. Badger across to Wisconson.
