  • Tawas Point Lighthouse

    In operation from 1876 to 2016, Tawas Point Lighthouse is a fascinating attraction for maritime buffs. Tawas Point is a destination for birdwatchers; it also offers spectacular views of sunrises over Lake Huron and sunsets over Tawas Bay.

    Although Governor Whitmer's Executive Order 2020-110 (COVID-19) allowed libraries and museums to re-open on June 8, 2020, Tawas Point Lighthouse will remain closed to the public throughout 2020.
