Round Island, Michigan

This light, seen by many passengers who take the ferry to Mackinac Island, once served to mark the dangerous shoals around the channel between Round Island and Mackinac Island. Private historical agencies and State and Federal agencies restored the lighthouse in 1978. It is currently owned by the Forest Service and maintained by the Great Lakes Lighthouse Keepers Association.
