Point Iroquois Lighthouse

The Point Iroquois Lighthouse in Brimley guided ships in and out of the Soo Locks for 93 years before it was decommissioned in 1962. Built in 1870 out of brick, it stands 65 feet tall.  You can still climb this lovely tower which is a part of the Hiawatha National Forest and absolutely gorgeous in the fall.  A short walk from its lovely beach, it is open every day with its museum through October 15th.
