Lighthouses of the Straits of Mackinac
  (1895, automated in 1924, deactivated from 1947-1996). Now part of the National Forest on tiny, uninhabited Round Island, the building was restored in 1978 for the filming of the movie "Somewhere in Time."

Some of these photos were taken during a lighthouse tour during the North American Light House Festival held in Mackinaw City, Michigan. The tours were so popular the Shepler's Mackinac Island Ferry now offers several tours on scattered days through the summer and other photos were taken during those tours.
