Michigan Lighthouses For Sale

The federal government is looking to unload three Michigan lighthouses that it no longer needs. The Detroit Free Press reported Monday that the U.S. Coast Guard wants to find new owners for the Frankfort North Breakwater Lighthouse; the Middle Island Lighthouse, across Thunder Bay from Alpena; and the South Haven south pier lighthouse.

The three lighthouses are among several nationwide recently made available under the National Historic Lighthouse Preservation Act. For the past decade, it’s allowed lighthouses to be transferred to those with the means and commitment to maintain them.

Local communities, museums or nonprofit groups get a first shot at them. If that doesn’t work, they could be sold at auction.
