2022—Indiana’s Only Lighthouse

The Michigan City, Indiana Lighthouse was built in 1904 and it is the only public operating lighthouse in Indiana. Lighthouse keepers used the elevated catwalk for 29 years to access the light tower. In 1933, the light was electrified. This lighthouse is very similar to the St. Joseph’s Lighthouse in St. Joseph, Michigan. The main difference in appearance between the two is that the St. Joseph’s Lighthouse has a smoke stack which was restored to the lighthouse in 2016, amid some local controversy but they both have the same red roof. On this gray day, the red roof stands out. I slowed the shutter speed to blur the waves.
