Forty years ago, the people of Michigan City restored the deteriorated old lighthouse that sat vacant for decades. Once the current lighthouse was built on the end of the east pier extending into Lake Michigan, this light was no longer necessary, and was left to the elements.
Today, the building is home to the Old Michigan City Lighthouse Museum. It features nautical and historical items that once belonged to the former lighthouse keepers, and other local people and businesses.
Well worth a visit - open April to October.
