The South Haven Pier Light PDF Print E-mail

Fantastic video (below) about the South Haven Lighthouse. Visit southhavenlight.org for more info about the light. Plus, follow a historical series about the origins of the South Haven Pier Light from the book - The Harbor Light, 1872-1960 by Jeanette Stieve, with photos from the Appleyard collection.



The light house at the south pierhead in South Haven, Michigan needs extensive restoration due to years of corrosion and lack of maintenance. You would not know the lighthouse needed work by observing it from the harbor entrance of this Southwest Michigan town. It has been standing guard here since 1903.

Lighthouse Deed Ceremony - Video by Dick Brunvand for the Historical Association of South Haven

lighthouse ceremony

It's official now! Amidst the rain and a few umbrellas, on August 9, 2012, during a transfer ceremony high on the lake bluff overlooking the pier, the Historical Association of South Haven, proudly accepted the Deed to the lighthouse from the United States of America. The drizzly afternoon did not dampen the spirits though of some 50 plus supporters, who showed their enthusiasm for this acquisition by attending. So once again, thank you South Haven.
