See this historic Michigan lighthouse.

The Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse is located off of Interstate 75 in northern Michigan. It was established in 1889 and is 58 feet tall. This place is known as the "Castle of the Straits" and helped guide ships traveling through the northern section of Lake Michigan. Points of interest include the fog signal building, keepers' quarters, lighthouse tower, barn, and warehouse. This historic landmark underwent renovations to restore it and it has been open to the public since 2004. 

Tours of the lighthouse tower are available seasonally from about May to October, but visitors can walk around the grounds and see the exterior of the structure and walk around the grounds during the off-season. Guests usually spend at least an hour at this historic site, so come prepared with comfortable close-toed shoes. Tickets are less than $10 per person and they offer discounts for groups of 12 or more people. If you love touring historic sites, be sure to stop by the Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse.
