The tower was constructed in 1822 out of native limestone by William Kelly and automated in 1958.
The museum has a variety of exhibits, including a restored Coast Guard boat and exhibits on boat safety and the history of Great Lakes shipping.
Visitors who love museums will marvel at the house, which has its own unique history. The house sits on the site of the original keeper’s house, which was built in 1821.
Once you’ve taken a lighthouse tour and explored the lifesaving museum and the park grounds, take time to stop by the lighthouse gift shop.
