Michigan has two Sand Point Lighthouses in the Upper Peninsula. One is in Escanaba HERE, and this red brick lighthouse is near Baraga. It was constructed in 1872 and sits on L’Anse Bay across from the town of L’Anse. In 1922 a light was placed on top of a metal skeletal structure and the old brick lighthouse was decommissioned. It was sold to private hands and is now in the ownership of the Keweenaw Bay Indians. When I visited it the grounds were open to the public and it is a nice place to stop if you are traveling between L’Anse and Houghton on US-41.
P.S. if you are wondering L’Anse is French for “the cove”
