Work is Progressing Nicely on the Fort Gratiot Lighthouse

Fort Gratiot Lighthouse











The Lighthouse is looking so beautiful in her new finery.  It seems like it has taken a long time to get her to this point, but the wear that needed to be repaired was from more than 180 years of faithful service.  The Lighthouse has been closed to the public since 2008 when the Coast Guard deemed her unsafe for tours.

Brick Fundraiser sale at the Port Huron Museum

As part of the restoration fundraising the original bricks that were replaced during the repairs are being offered for sale.  They are all numbered and come with a certificate of authenticity.  There are “bare bricks” and there are bricks which come with a beautiful laminated cover plate depicting the lighthouse in her glory.  These bricks can be purchased from the Port Huron Museum, the Thomas Edison Depot Museum, or can be purchased online through the Port Huron museum website.
