"Big Red" in Holland

Big Red might be the most recognized and well-known lighthouse in Michigan, standing guard over Holland's harbor since 1934. Built by the Dutchies who settled in this area, it is covered with metal plates to protect it from the harsh Michigan winters. It is not open to the public but on rare occasions by the Holland Harbor Lighthouse Historical commission which takes care of it. You can get a good look at it, however, from Holland State Park on Lake Michigan where we took this photo.
