Description: The Ontonagon Lighthouse was owned by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers until an Act of Congress, signed by President Clinton, transferred the lighthouse to the Ontonagon Historical Society. The society officially obtained the land patent on August 6, 2003, and is working towards the restoration of the lighthouse. The fifth-order lens, formerly used in the lighthouse, can be seen at the society's museum.
Located on the western side of the mouth of the Ontonagon River in Ontonagon. The lighthouse is owned by the Ontonagon County Historical Society. Grounds/dwelling/tower open during tours.
