Lighthouse Quad
Ghosts are said to make Grand Traverse Lighthouse their home, which accounts for two October weekends of spooky events.
History preserved with four lighthouses in Leelanau
By Jennie Berkson
Special to the Color Tour
Given the age of the four light- houses within Leelanau County and the ravages through years of Northern Michigan weather and
Lake Michigan waters, all are in need of regular maintenance and, at times, more attention.
They are getting both, which will ensure they’re standing for the next generation to appreciate.
Leelanau is home to the Grand
Traverse Lighthouse, South Fox Island Lighthouse, South Manitou Island Lighthouse and a relative newcomer, The Crib.
Two make wonderful additions to a fall color tour, while one pair is too far off the beaten path for a safe visit
in autumn.
Which just means that you’ll
patience and effort will be needed for a future visit.
Following is an update of the four lighthouses. Please consider visiting all, whether sooner or later.
