Tawas Point Lighthouse

Tawas Point was originally called Ottawa Point, but was renamed in 1902. It is situated in northern Michigan near present-day Tawas City off Tawas Bay. A light was first built in 1853 to warn mariners of the point. Shifting sands which extended the point, as well as problems with the original light, made it necessary to build a new light in 1877. The building is a Victorian-era style lighthouse with a 70-foot tall tower. The lighthouse is now part of Tawas State Park and is open to the public. It still retains its Fresnel lens and still operates.
