Photo Gallery Friday: Michigan’s Lighthouses on Lake Michigan

Point Betsie Lighthouse

Michigan is home to more lighthouses than any other state in the country, and more than a handful of these beacons guide vessels on Lake Michigan. The lake has for centuries been an important place for shipping, fishing, and recreational travel. Lights help guide travelers into harbors at Charlevoix, Grand Haven, Muskegon, Holland and other cities while others warn of the dangers of places like Big Sable Point, White Shoal or the Straits of Mackinac. These lighthouses are not only each remarkable in their architecture, but also provide an important link to the maritime history of this great state.
