A Lighthouse of Huron

9 Charity Island (MI 97)
September 15, 2001

Built in 1857, this light is on the Northwest corner of Charity Island (about 3 miles east-north-east of Gravelly Shoal). As you can see, it was basically falling apart and sadly in need of repair. By now (2009), the building has been replaced and contains a restaurant. Gravelly Shoal has replaced the light and it has been pretty much ignored since 1939. It is open for tours and is accessed by ferryboats departing from either Caseville, MI in the thumb of Michigan or from E. Tawas, MI history ARLHS # USA-943
