This man-made harbor was a major port of refuge in its
heyday. A massive breakwater extension was constructed and many lake boats
took shelter here. Dozens of shipwrecks are in the area, evidence of
failed attempt to seek safety. It is located on the end of the breakwater
pier and is nearly inaccessible but can be photographed from the park pier
The conical brick structure is encased in cast iron plates, 22' at the
base and 18' at the parapet. The lens plane, 54' above the water is an
active, automatic light almost identical to the Detroit River Lighthouse.
