Detroit River Lighthouse
Iron plated, this 49 foot-tall light marks the point where the busy channel of the Detroit River meets Lake Erie's steamboat tracks.
When this light was first established, few lake boats could be found thatwere sized in excess of 300 feet. Today, oreboats that stretch
beyond 1,000 feet in length pass by the light. In the mid 1880s, the mariners looked up from the deck at the light. Now the modern mariners
actually look down as they pass by!
Location: Southern mouthof the Detroit River, Detroit, MI.
