St. Ignace Light

This steel tower was once part of a Michigan DOT Welcome Center on I-75 near Monroe Michigan. A rebuilding of the center in 2005 included demolition of the tower, but it was saved and moved to St. Ignace.

The tower was re-assembled on the dock formerly used by the railroad ferries Chief Wawatam and Sainte Marie.

Interested local supporters are seeking a permit to operate the light as an aid to navigation.
