The St. Joseph North Pier Lighthouses are a symbol of community, but did you know that the St. Joseph harbor has had a light since 1832? It is the second oldest site for a light on Lake Michigan. Learn how St. Joe went from the first lighthouse on the bluff to the two lighthouses that stand there today. Join presenter Kate Heckner Ulrey from the Heritage Museum and Cultural Center as she examines the many phases of the lighthouses and the importance of maritime history in the development of the St. Joseph/Benton Harbor community.Over 7,000 people visited the St. Joseph lighthouses this summer and you can too through the photos and discussion!
