Michigan’s Whitefish Point Lighthouse and Museum

Whitefish Point lighthouse is an icon of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. The oldest active light station on Lake Superior, is regarded as a critical navigational beacon guiding freighters passing to and from the Soo Locks. Whitefish Bay has seen more than its share of shipwrecks over the years, including the Edmund Fitzgerald. Today, a museum holds artifacts from many of those shipwrecks, the keeper’s home can be toured, and visitors can spend the night in the old Coast Guard quarters. Whitefish Point is a must visit destination for any fan of lighthouses or Michigan history.
