Menominee Lighthouse in the UP

The 34 foot tall Menominee Lighthouse, dating back to 1927, stands at the end of a long concrete pier. You can walk out to it, but it is not open to the public. The octagonal red shape stands at the mouth of the Menominee River in the UP, not too far from Green Bay, Wisconsin, on Lake Michigan.  The US Coast Guard no longer owns it, so the city of Menominee takes care of it.


  1. The freighter in your picture is a salty....

  2. Thanks, Mikoyan! I was wondering what it was! Suzie

  3. I can't tell which one though...It's owned by a company called Beluga. It is probably carrying supplies for windmills.
