Tawas Point Lighthouse
|Photo by Jack Ryan
The Tawas Point Lighthouse has been watching over a long sandy arm that juts into Lake Huron for over 130 years. Here on the sunrise side of Michigan, Saginaw Bay joins the great lake, once called La Mer Dooce (the Sweet Sea) by early French trappers. Today's photogenic light-station, with its bright white tower and contrasting rich red roof, paints a vivid coastal scene. Turned over to Michigan's Department of Natural Resources in 2002, the state has followed through on a costly restoration project.
