Following the lines of a familiar Bible verse,
beating swords into ploughshares, the original Vermilion Lighthouse tower used the cast iron from Civil War era Fort Sumter cannons. A pacifists dream, the 1877 light became a replacement for an old wooden structure that was quickly giving way to the elements. The lighthouse received its name from the nearby river and the Ohio town Vermilion. The solid structure came complete with a red beacon, and stood guard on Lake Erie and the river entrance.
