Fun Fact: This lighthouse was one of a pair of range lights that guided ships to the mouth of the Detroit River from Lake St Clair northeast of Peche Island. By 1970 it had developed a severe lean to one side and was eventually deactivated in 1983. The light was then moved to shore and now resides at Lighthouse Park in Marine City.
