Braddock Point Light
Wes Oleszewski & Wayne Sapulski*

The tower and dwelling were a near duplicate of Cleveland light of 1829 that was demolished in 1895. The lantern and lens were moved to this light.

The light was deactivated in 1954 and the 110-foot tower was cut down due to storm damage. The private owners have built a partial wooden reconstruction of the tower.

* Information from "Great Lakes Lighthouses, American & Canadian" published by Avery Color Studios, Gwinn, Michigan.

In 2009, the lighthouse was opened as a Bed & Breakfast.
