Lighthouse of the Week, February 26 - March 5, 2017: Presque Isle, Michigan

As mentioned in last week's Lighthouse of the Week post, there is also a Presque Isle, Michigan that also has a lighthouse. So this week I have pictures of that lighthouse, which can be compared to the Presque Isle, Pennsylvania lighthouse from last week.

But there are actually two of them, the Old and the New. Being comprehensively-oriented, I have a couple of pictures of each.

Here's where they are:

In Presque Isle County - peninsula on the coast at top right, the two green dots show the locations of the lighthouses.

Here's the dedicated Web site about both of them:

The Old was built in 1840 and the New in 1870. The New lighthouse is the (according to the site) the tallest publically-accessible lighthouse on the Great Lakes.
