Located on the eastern shore of Lake Michigan is the Big Sable Point Light. It was constructed in 1867 and first operated at 1888. Featuring a 112-foot tower, it was made with wood pilings, Cream City brick with an addition of boiler plate later on.

The Big Sable Point Light was automated in 1968, almost two decades after the building were wired for electricity. It was then acquired by the Foundation for Behavioral Research and helped the Big Sable Lighthouse Association to preserve and restore the buildings.

Today, the Big Sable Point Light is already a part of the Ludington State Park. Folks can visit the lighthouse but a mile and a half trek is needed to reach the point. Depending on the date of your visit, there are also scheduled bus trips to the site.
