Rising Waters: Great Lakes lighthouse keepers fight to preserve history in the face of climate change-
As one of the oldest lighthouses in the Great Lakes region, much of the Waugoshance Lighthouse’s history has been lost. What remains are unsubstantiated ghost stories, a piece of World War Ⅱ history and a lighthouse left to crumble into Lake Michigan.
More than $126,000 in grant funding from the Michigan State Historic Preservation Office have been awarded to the Crisp Point Light Historical Society, the North Manitou Light Keepers and St. Clair County Parks and Recreation.
