Old Presque Isle Light - Presque Isle, Michigan:Old Presque Isle Light - Presque Isle, Michigan:The Old Presque Isle Light was the first lighthouse in the Presque Isle, Michigan area, built in 1840, supported physically by two-thirds stone and one-third brick,[3] and supported financially by funds appropriated by Congress two years earlier of $5,000.[4] The tower and dwelling did not last long in the harsh weather, however, and by 1867 they were deteriorated enough for Congress to find need for a newer station. It presently is not operational and is a museum.[5]
 

We all of us growing up and living on the Great Lakes our whole lives, it's hard not to love lighthouses. Fred and Robert have been putting together many of the newer photo and videos they have shot recently, with a lot of the content Fred has shot over the years. We are updating this section of the website often. We plan on adding more video, lots of pictures of lighthouse from places all over Great Lakes, Northeast, Northwest and Southeast of the United States in the upcoming weeks. So stay tuned.
