McGulpin Point sign

McGulpin Point Lighthouse and historic Site is located just west of downtown Mackinaw City in Northwest Michigan. There are several interesting charts of the straits of Mackinac in the parking lot, as shown below.

Lss Duquette at McGulpin Lighthouse

McGulpin light shined for the first time in 1869. The light at McGulpin was in service until it was rendered obsolete by the construction of the Old Mackinac Point Light and fog signal station. By 1906, McGulpin light was decommissioned and sold into private ownership in 1913. Emmet County purchased it in 2008 to enhance recreational opportunities for all. The property includes 330 feet of Lake Michigan shoreline.
