Michigan - Fort Gratiot Lighthouse – Port Huron, Michigan - This lighthouse is the oldest in Michigan still operating with its green flashing light (automated in 1933) which can be seen for seventeen miles! It helps to keep watch over Lake Huron at the entrance to the St. Clair River.
The original lighthouse was built in 1825 at a height of 74 feet. The first lighthouse, built in 1825, was poorly constructed and toppled over during a storm in 1828. The second lighthouse was built in 1829 of much better construction techniques and materials. The white painted brick tower was extended to its present height of 86 ft. in the early 1860′s.
The two-story brick light keeper’s house was built with a hipped gable rood and pointed gothic porch in 1874-75.
This is one of the busiest waterways in the world and the Coast Guardsman are stationed their to keep things in good order. -
Certificate of Authenticity from Danbury Mint included - 6 7/8" tall
