Historic Fairport Harbor Light

Following a bit of afternoon rain on our visit to the museum, the weather cleared up for the evening, and we returned to the Fairport Harbor, Ohio lighthouse for a bit. It's now a museum of maritime history including artifacts from the Edmond Fitzgerald and numerous local boats and maritime businesses. I believe it's the first such museum on the Great Lakes.

The keeper's house is considered to be haunted by a ghost cat (the mummified remains of which are on display in the museum). The museum was also featured on the Travel Channel's Haunted Lighthouses. Haunted or not, it's a great place to visit, and for a panoramic view of Fairport Harbor and Lake Erie, the climb to the top of the tower isn't difficult at all - and it's well worth the $3 admission which includes the museum.
