Whitefish Point Light Station

Eight Great Lake states have depended on the ease of water transporation for the last 150 years. Historically, Whitefish Bay has been a haven for ships seeking protection from the devastating storms of Lake Superior. Located on Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, Whitefish Point was known as the Graveyard of Ships. More vessels have been lost in this area than anywhere else on the lake. Whitefish Point juts out into Lake Superior's southeast corner, forming the bay where Whitefish Point Light Station overlooks the entrance to the harbor.
