Another one of Michigan?s numerous lighthouses in the shores of Lake Michigan is the Peninsula Point Light. This one was constructed in 1866 to aid the ships in navigating around the dangerous shoals and reefs of the Big Bay de Noc, Green Bay, and Little Bay de Noc in the Lake of Michigan.

Automated in 1922, it was soon deactivated with the completion of the Minneapolis Shoal Light. The site was then opened to the public since its deactivation in 1936.

Today, the US National Forest Service is still managing and looking after the Peninsula Point Light. It has been repaired and fit with certain features to become more of an attraction by the assistance of the Civilian Conservation Corps and the Stonington Grange.
