Each person must pay $75 and put in roughly 70 hours of service over two weeks. In exchange, you get to live in the lighthouse keeper’s quarters. The work includes greeting visitors and routine maintenance around the lighthouse.

Hillary Pine, Tawas Point Lighthouse historian, says the goal is to have teams of two, three or four adults.
