Michigan Island Lights

One of the stops on my recent trip to the Apostle Islands was to Michigan Island, which is home to two lighthouses.  Both have interesting histories, not only about how they got there, but also who lived there when they were staffed by people rather than being automated.  Of course this is true of all lighthouses and I encourage not only visiting these sites, but also learning about their keepers.  I will leave it up to you to do the research about this island, just follow the links I’m providing.  If you choose to visit Michigan Island, be prepared to climb stairs.  There are over 100 just to get up to the site, plus a long spiral staircase you can climb in the taller light, it’s worth the effort for the view.
