Pretty little lighthouse that welcomes you to the island. You can learn the history of it while on an island tour.

We were able to see this lighthouse from several different vantage points while enjoying our day on Mackinac. It welcomed us to the island and said farewell friends come again as we were leaving..

This is an iconic symbol of the Island. Its the first thing you see upon arriving by Ferry and the last thing you see upon leaving.

Pass right by the lighthouses as you travel on both major ferry carriers. Great picture opportunities on board the ferry.

If you want my humble opinion, I think it is somewhat ' silly ' to have this small lighthouse appear as an individual tripadvisor attraction. However it is very attractive and I shot seven photos of it both from the ferry and from the island.
