The Sand Point Light in Escanaba, Michigan is one of the two structures of the sort with the same name. This one is open to the public every summer as a tourist destination.

The Sand Point Light was constructed during the time when the town of Escanaba was an important shipping port. It saw a vast amount of shipping traffic, so something to guide these ships is just necessary to aid the flow of the water vessels. The lighthouse was first lit in 1868 and was deactivated in 1939.

In 1986, the Sand Point Light was acquired by the Delta County Historical Society. They renovated and restored the place and now open it to the public every Memorial Day to the first of October. It allows people to climb the towers and learn more about how the lightkeepers lived back in the day.
