The Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse

The Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse

The Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse

The Straits of Mackinac which joins Lake Huron and Lake Superior, has always been a dangerous place for travel. The first lighthouse in the area was built in 1832.  The Mackinac Point Lighthouse was completed in 1890 in an excellent position with a strong light that could be seen for 16 miles. It operated until 1957 when the Mackinac bridge was opened, whose lights made the lighthouse unnecessary.
