Historic Lighthouse Back in Service

Set on South Manitou Island, the lighthouse was built in 1839 to protect ships along the eastern coast of Lake Michigan.

One of the loveliest lighthouses on the Great Lakes, the South Manitou Island Light is a favorite destination for hikers in the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore in Michigan.
