The fog signal building is located on the lakeshore just down the hill from the lighthouse. Inside
the corridor that links the dwelling to the tower is a display on the history of the lighthouses and a display cabinet containing a fourth-order Fresnel lens. According to a sign near the lens, the lens was reportedly used for fifty years at the William Livingston Lighthouse on Belle Isle near Detroit.
Located on the southern end of Beaver Island, which is roughly 30 miles northwest
