About the North Point Lighthouse Museum:

The North Point Lighthouse is located in the heart of Lake Park, nestled between two ravines extending to Lake Michigan. This iconic structure played an important role in the region’s maritime trade and economic growth for more than 120 years, where it remained in use until being decommissioned in 1994. NPL has been preserved and restored through the determined efforts of the North Point Lighthouse Friends, Inc.
