McGulpins Point Lighthouse - Mackinaw City, Michigan

McGulpin's Point Light (1869) is 2 miles west of Old Mackinac Point Light near the Mackinaw City village limit. Deactivated in 1906, until the fall of 2008, the lighthouse was a private residence and the property was not open to the public. Only a partial view of the McGulpin's Point light was available from the road, and due to trees, the McGulpin's Point lighthouse was not visible from the Straits of Mackinac

These photos were taken while the lighthouse was still a private residence. To see the new McGulpin Point Lighthouse Museum, visit
