Sturgeon Point Lighthouse & Museum [Lighthouses, Museums], Alcona Historical Society, P.O. Box 174, Harrisville, Michigan 48740, Phone: (989) 724-6297. Sturgeon Point Lighthouse is located five miles north of Harrisville on  Lake Huron and was completed in November 1870. The tower is 70 feet, 9  inches tall and is 16 feet in diameter at its base. The light is 3.5  order Fresnel lens made in Paris, France. The light is still maintained by the U.S. Coast Guard. The keeper's house is now a maritime museum  which is open to the public from Memorial Day to mid-September. The  lighthouse tower is open to the public. The grounds are open all year.

Sturgeon Point Light Station [Lighthouses, Museums], P.O Box 174, Harrisville, MI 48740.  Phone: (989) 724-6297. The Sturgeon Point Light Station is a lighthouse on Lake Huron in Alcona County, northeastern lower Michigan. Established to ward mariners off of a reef that extends 1.5 miles lakeward from Sturgeon Point, it is today regarded as a historic example of a Great Lakes lighthouse. The light station was built in 1869 of brick masonry on a limestone foundation. The tower stands 70 feet 9 inches in height, with a diameter of 16 feet  at the base. The adjoining, two-story keeper’s quarters was designed in the Cape Cod style and built of the same materials. The light began its service with a sixth-order Fresnel lens which was upgraded to a 3.5-order lens (which had been originally installed at Oswego, New York twenty years later. In 1876, the light station was joined in its service by an adjacent United States Life-Saving Service station.] By the 1940s, the light was fully automated, and the Coast Guard withdrew all personnel and dismantled the life-saving station. The light station is a registered National Historical Landmark. Ownership was transferred from the Coast Guard to the Michigan Department of Natural Resources under the terms of the National Historic Lighthouse Preservation Act, and operations are maintained by the Alcona County Historical Society. The lighthouse is maintained and operated by the Alcona Historical Society, which is a private organization that funds the maintenance and operation with few public funds. The Society is in the process of raising contributions to renovate and paint the lighthouse. The tower is regularly open during the summer for climbing by the public (for a small fee to cover insurance costs). The museum is open to the public, and is supported by donations.
