Old Presque Isle Lighthouse
|Photo by Jack Ryan
Old Presque Isle Lighthouse once marked the eastern Michigan harbor along the Lake Huron shores. The bids went out in the late 1930s, and by September, 1940, the newly constructed light-station was put into service. In comparison, this navigation beacon's life-span was a short 30 years. The lighthouse board decided on a new lighthouse instead of rebuilding the old Presque Isle keeper's quarters. The old lighthouse was abandoned, and the light mechanisms dismantled.
