Presque Isle Lighthouse
On our road trip to Ohio we drove along the south shore of Lake Erie. Just past Erie Pennsylvania is the Presque Isle State Park. We drove around the park and found this beautiful lighthouse which is actually a private residence.
A little history from the park web page. Presque Isle Lighthouse is located on the north shore of Presque Isle State Park at Lighthouse Beach and is the second oldest lighthouse on Lake Erie’s shore. Completed in 1873, the brick tower with attached dwelling was home to nine U.S. Lighthouse Service keepers and their families until 1944. During the shipping season, the keeper climbed to the top of the tower 3 to 4 times each night with fuel to put in the lamp.
