Michigan City Lighthouse


Lighthouses in the Michigan Harbor represented a physical and emotional guiding light for sailors during the 19th and 20th century. These days, you can explore history during walking tours, with an opportunity to climb into the lantern room. View collections of running lights, ship models, and learn about the Lighthouse Keepers who maintained the area. For a more somber tone, learn about Michigan City's role in Abraham Lincoln's funeral and tragic shipwrecks that occurred in Lake Michigan.
