New & Old Presque Isle Lighthouses
At Presque Isle, you'll find lighthouse buildings you can enter and one that still performs its age-old function. The northernmost of the two, the New Presque Isle Lighthouse, dates from 1871 and is still in use. The 113-foot tower is open to the public May through October. Nearby, the keeper's house has been turned into a maritime museum with period furnishings, artifacts, and shipwreck exhibits. It's open daily from May through October, 9 AM to 6 PM (989-595-5419). A mile to the south, the Old Presque Isle Lighthouse has also been converted to a museum. It is said to be haunted by the spirit of a lighthouse keeper. How else to explain light coming from the 25-foot tower that has been out of use since 1871? You can visit the cottage and climb the tower daily May through October, 9 AM to 7 PM (989-595-6979). Nearby Ocqueoc Falls is the largest waterfall on Michigan's Lower Peninsula.
