|South Fox Island, MI|
Description: Two lighthouses stand on South Fox Island. The first was established in 1867 and was active until the tall metal tower was relocated to the island from Sapelo Island in 1934.
The Fox Island Lighthouse Association is making steady progress towards restoring the light station. In March of 2009, it was announced that the association would get $16,666 for the South Fox Island Lighthouse from the Michigan Lighthouse Assistance Program, which is administered by the State Historic Preservation Office and funded by proceeds from the sale of the "Save our Lights" license plate.
The lighthouses are located on South Fox Island, which is roughly midway between
Beaver Island and the Manitou Islands. The lighthouses are owned by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources. Grounds open, dwellings/towers closed.
