Fakten

  • The lighthouse stands at a point on the Lake Michigan shoreline where the sloping coast of the North Shore suburbs forms an angle with the straighter coast of Evanston and Chicago.
  • The promontory's name (originally "Grosse Pointe") came from French explorers of the 17th century who opened trade routes with the native populations.
  • The light was electrified in 1923 and automated in 1935, but in 1941 it was replaced by lighted buoys seven miles offshore. In 1946 it was relit as a private navigation aid, and continues operation to the present day.
  • This is the fourth-tallest lighthouse on the Great Lakes.
  • The structure is a double shell of brick with an iron spiral staircase inside. The original structural brick facade was later covered with concrete.
  • It was a named a National Historic Landmark in 1999.
