Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse

Historic Lighthouse & Fog Signal Station
With its impressive buff-colored brick walls, large square tower topped with battlements, and elegant fourth order Fresnel lens, this lighthouse-built in 1892-is a source for inspiration. And then there's the backdrop: Sparkling beach sand, the majestic Straits of Mackinac, and the magnificent Mackinac Bridge, acting as a vista connecting the past, present, and future. Climb the tower and breathe in the spectacular view as generations of lighthouse keepers did before you. Step inside the lighthouse, and hear the Victrola play pre-World War I tunes in a period-styled sitting room. Explore nighttime navigation and Great Lakes' shipwrecks. Interact with hands-on exhibits. Ask questions. Immerse yourself. Inside this stately structure, it's always 1910, so welcome and discover.
