“has guided ships through squalls and shoals throughout its colorful history”

Established in 1867 by the National Lighthouse Service, Sand Point's light has guided ships through squalls and shoals throughout its colorful history. A fire in 1886 destroyed the structure, but the lighthouse was rebuilt and served the sailing public until its decommissioning by the Coast Guard in 1939. Today an electronic club light guides boats into the harbor, and the lighthouse has been restored as a maritime museum.

$5 for a family to tour the lighthouse. That also gets you into a museum behind the lighthouse that was interesting even to my 10 year old boy!

Overall a pretty interesting place. The lighthouse and museum are decent but the staff are extraordinary! They actively engage you and give you much more information than the plaques and exhibits in the museum or house. Great fun.

Wonderful piece of history. $5 fee for a family pass was very reasonable and included the lighthouse and historical museum. If you're in Escanaba, this is a must see site.

Nice place to take a few photos and walk around the yacht club across the street. The building itself was closed so we couldn't take a tour.
