Saginaw River Rear Range Light Rating: None

Since Michigan is mostly filled with lighthouses due to its navigation hazard and shallow waters, it is not surprising to find more historic lighthouses on the map and that is open to the public. One such example is the Saginaw River Range Light which has been constructed in 1831, although, it was only lit in 1876. It was located in the Saginaw River, during the time when lumber was massively transported around.

The Saginaw River Rear Range Light took quite some time before it was operated due to various reasons. It was then deactivated in the 1970s when the Coast Guard moved to the other side of the river. The Dow Chemical Company then purchased the building.

The Saginaw River Maritime Historical Society then contacted the company and struck a deal about working on restoring the Saginaw River Rear Range Light together. They started work soon after and is still in the process today.
