Point Iroquois Lighthouse is located in Bay Mills township, near Brimley, in Michigan’s Chippewa County. It stands 65 feet (19.8m) tall overlooking Whitefish Bay and Lake Superior where the St. Mary River transitions to it. Built in 1870, this lighthouse was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. This historical landmark offers a museum, gift shop, and hosts several educational programs. It is ran and maintained by the Hiawatha National Forest Service. The interior can be visited during operating hours and is free to enter, though donations are always appreciated. You can take a self guided tour with the Hiawatha National Forest mobile app and even climb the 72 steps up the light tower. During non-operational hours, the lighthouse grounds are still open to be visited and has a beautiful accessible boardwalk leading to the Lake Superior shoreline.
