Facts

  • The United States Coast Guard transferred ownership of the station to the United States Park Service in 1965 to reduce cost, making it part of the Hiawatha National Forest.
  • The station was completely restored in 1983 by the Bay Mills-Brimley Historical Research Society, who leases the property.
  • Though it lies within the postal code for the unincorporated village of Brimley, the lighthouse actually sits 7.4 miles (11.9 kilometers) to the northwest of the small village, near another small, unincorporated village by the name of Bay Mills.
  • The first lighthouse built on this site was a 45-foot rubble tower constructed from 1855 to 1856, but the tower was constructed slowly and torn down in 1869 to make room for the current lighthouse.
  • The station was shuttered in 1962 after the Point Iroquois Lighted Buoy 44 was installed off-shore.
