Gull Island Light

A black, skeleton iron, 50-foot tower that marks a very low island and rocky shoal off the northeast tip of Michigan Island in the Apostle Islands. The shoal extends more than three miles in a northeasterly direction.

A light was first proposed for this location in 1906, but it was not until 1928 that funds were appropriated to erect the light.
