Event Calendar

The existing light tower and keeper's dwelling were built in 1857 and today have been completely restored by the Society and the Huron County Road Commission. The Pointe aux Barques Lighthouse is the oldest continuous operating light on the Great Lakes, having survived the fire of 1881, the storm of 1913 and the Armistice Day storm of 1937. Our light still shines brightly over Lake Huron for ships and mariners to this day. The lifesaving station, the first on the Great Lakes, was built in 1875 and was credited with over 200 rescues before closing in 1937.
