Michigan's Still Active Eagle Harbor Lighthouse


A lighthouse at Eagle Harbor, on Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula, has been guiding ships since 1851. Today's still operational Eagle Harbor Lighthouse has been standing since 1871. Also located on the grounds are a Maritime Museum, Keweenaw History Museum and Commercial Fishing Museum.

Social Media Description

Do you like climbing lighthouses?

Through the years, we've had fun climbing lighthouses as we've traveled throughout North America. I learned that Michigan's Upper Peninsula is home to more than 40 mid-1800's era lighthouses. Trying to plan a lighthouse hunt, we learned that many are still in operation and not open to the public. Others weren't near where we had planned to be, and still others could only be seen by boat.

Of the lighthouses that we did find, the Eagle Harbor Lighthouse was one of our favorites. (Unfortunately, we didn't find any that we could climb.)

Where is your favorite lighthouse?
