Michigan - Robert Resnick: Grand Haven Lighthouse. It's the only one like it. - I've been here! This place is crazy fun when a storm rolls in as you can see from the water being washed upon the pier. Definitely easy to get swept away and pulled in, though.

Not all lighthouses stand on the seashore; lakes need lighthouses too! Especially great lakes like, er, the Great Lakes where shipping (and shipwrecks) have been commonplace for several centuries. Take the late, great Waugoshance Light for instance. Built in 1851 to replace a lightship guiding ships through a treacherous area of the Straits of Mackinac, the Waugoshance Light was the first Great Lakes lighthouse to be surrounded on water on all sides.

Grand Haven Lighthouse Pierhead (outer) - is the original fog signal building built in 1875 which was moved to end of breakwater in 1905 after the pier had been extended several times. The red, wood frame structure was sheathed in corrugated iron in 1922.
