Situated on top of a Chippewa Count Bluff in Michigan, the Point Iroquois Light is an 1870 lighthouse that marks the line separating Whitefish Bay and the end of the St. Marys River in the west. It was built as a replacement to the first lighthouse erected that was for the first Soo Locks of the St. Marys? aid to navigation. The first light was questioned for its quality, so this one replaced it after its two decades of service.

The Point Iroquois Light sports a Cape Cod style of lighthouses which was a popular choice back then. It was operated for almost a century until it was deactivated in 1963 when it was replaced by the Gros Cap Reefs Light.

Today, the Point Iroquois Light is seen as an iconic landmark, commonly used as a subject in memorabilia. It is now a part of the Hiawatha National Forest and is mainly operated as a Marine Museum.
