I went for a five minute drive to enjoy the beautiful sunset and to take pictures of McGulpin Point Lighthouse. McGulpin Point’s light was turned off in 1906 and has been privately owned since. Emmet County purchased the lighthouse last year and decided to put the light back in the tower . The lighthouse will stay lighted and is now used for navigational purposes. A relighting ceremony was held on May 30, 2009 and the lighthouse is opened on weekends till Labor’s Day. From the lighthouse you can drive down onto Lake Michigan and enjoy the Mighty Mac and incredible sunsets, just like I did.
The Light Is Back!
