Lightships are floating lighthouses that are anchored in areas where it was too deep, expensive, or impractical to construct a lighthouse. The HURON Lightship was the last operating lightship on the Great Lakes, and served for over 50 years when she was retired in 1970. For 36 of those years, she was stationed at Corsica Shoals, a sandy area 6 miles north of Port Huron.
Andrew Kercher of the Port Huron Museums, which now maintain the HURON as a museum ship, will join us to share the story of this fascinating and historic vessel.
