Built in 1870, this historic lighthouse is now a museum of local history and culture, and an interesting feature is its unique location. Situated at exactly the 45th parallel between the North Pole and the Equator, the lighthouse was an important warning system for the ships and boats about the treacherous shoals off the coast into the Grand Traverse Bay. Self guided tours of the lighthouse are available with an admission fee, though the first level entry is free of charge. The lighthouse is located in Lighthouse park and is close to several beautiful hiking and trekking trails. Accommodation in the log cabin is available. Interestingly, the lighthouse has a Keeper Program, where visitors can volunteer to live in the lighthouse and help run it for a period of time. For additional information, visit the website or email.
