Address:
3510 Channel Drive, Michigan, United States
Description:

Located at Pere Marquette Park, the lighthouse is at the end of a walkable 1,514 foot pier which creates the south "arm" of the Muskegon breakwater. Built in 1931 the red, ironclad, pyramidal tower sits upon a rectangular base which makes up up 10 of it's 63'. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the structure was never meant to be manned or occupied and its sparseness speaks to this. Visitors can walk the pier and take in the view of the Muskegon Channel, breakwater and Lake Michigan.

Lighthouse Fun Fact: The lantern room in the Muskegon South Pierhead Light is 33 years older than the light tower that surrounds it.
