East Tawas Lighthouse - SkyWatch Friday

Tawas Point Lighthouse (in Michigan on Lake Huron) was established in 1876, and is still active today. We climbed to the top of the lighthouse and the view is awesome.

  1. Nice picture. How many lighthouses are there in your area?

  2. Do you know if any of those lighthouses are privately owned? Or, do they all belong to Michigan Parks and Recreation? Some of the lighthouses on Superior are private property now while others are inside state parks.
