Michigan Lighthouses

Michigan is the only state bordered by four of the five Great Lakes and with over 115 lights and lighthouses you're sure to find one along your travels.  Many of the lights still guide ships through treacherous waters. Others have been abandoned, some to be later rescued by renovation and restoration. Several are open to the public, a few include museums, and three are Bed and Breakfasts (Big Bay Point, Sand Hills and Whitefish Point). 

Lake Michigan has more lighthouses than the other lakes. It seems like every little town along the shore has a river empyting into the lake, with a lighthouse guarding the entrance. Lake Michigan is full of "pier lights," again usually at the mouth of a river

Early French Explorers of the 1600's dubbed this 31,000 square miles of inland water "Superior." The discovery of copper, iron, and other valuable ores let to a period of heavy shipping traffic, which in turn created a demand for lighthouses as navigation aids.

The lighthouses on the American side of Lake Huron are all in the state of Michigan. In fact, Michigan has well over 100 lighthouses, including more than 60 that are still active

Two fine lighthouses in the Straights of Mackinac, on the Lake Huron side of the bridge, are Old Mackinac Point Light and Round Island Light. Both are inactive, but remain highly attractive lights to visit.

The most interesting thing about Round Island Passage Light Station is its main light. Located in the top section of the 41 ˝-foot tower, it is indeed a departure from the “single light source” arrangement that has been in use for centuries. This new light apparatus is a solid bank of sealed beam lamps of 3,000 candlepower which produce a characteristic of occulting green every 10 seconds. It is visible 16 miles.

As is the case in most specialized occupations, many of the terms related to lighthouses are unique.  Here are some of the more unusual terms:

Wickies - A nickname give to early lighthouse keepers who spent a great deal of their time trimming the wick on the lamp in order to keep it burning brightly, and to minimize sooting.

Pharologist - One who studies or is interested in lighthouses.

Acetylene - A fuel used which began to be used in lighthouses after 1910. It was the first fuel to eliminate the need for a keeper to carry oil up the tower, since it could be stored on the ground and an automatic sun valve used to turn the light off at daybreak and on again at dusk.
