Lake Erie's Historic  & Unique Lighthouses

Some are open to the public, while others can only be viewed from outside. Either way, their beauty is excuse enough to take a Lake Erie lighthouses tour.

Erie Land Lighthouse

It’s the original site of the lighthouse on Presque Isle that was constructed in 1818.

North Pier Lighthouse

The North Pier Lighthouse is one of three in Erie Pennsylvania. It’s also known as the Presque Isle North Pier Light.

Presque Isle Lighthouse

Tours are offered from Memorial Day to Labor Day and include the lighthouse and keeper’s house. If you want to enjoy the view, you can climb the winding staircase of 78 steps to the top.

Ashtabula Harbor Lighthouse

Ashtabula Harbor Lighthouse can only be visited on a boat ride, and the ride comes with a tour — weather and water conditions permitting.

Fairport Harbor Marine Museum and Lighthouse

It stands proud and can be visited on a regular tour schedule or on private tours. In 1945, the keepers’ house was turned into a marine museum.

Fairport Harbor West Breakwater Light

This breakwater light was commissioned in Fairport Harbor in 1925 and led to the Fairport Harbor Lighthouse closing. No one has lived here since the light was automated in 1948.
