Continuing this week’s Upper Peninsula lighthouse adventure, today I visited the Point Iroquois Lighthouse. Located on the south shore of Lake Superior, this light was built in 1856. Originally, only the smaller right half of the building was built. The large addition on the left side was built later.
This lighthouse is the last lighthouse before an eastbound ship reaches the mouth of the St. Mary’s River enroute to the Soo Locks. In World War II, this lighthouse was so important that three keepers were stationed here.
