As a bonus to this lighthouse road trip, start or end your trip with the Calumet Harbor Lighthouse, which has a long and fascinating history. It was built in 1851 but its light was extinguished in 1855 due to sailors’ complaints that it was dangerous to have without a harbor and was easily mistakable for Chicago. It was not reactivated until 1873. Like many of the previously mentioned lighthouses, this one has undergone a wealth of repairs and updates over the years.
