What if our lighthouses
were gone forever?
Imagine gazing across our beautiful Lake Michigan shoreline and not seeing the iconic North Pier lighthouses. The inner light, emblazoned with red and white, has adorned artistic and family photos for generations — our weddings, graduations, family gatherings — and even appeared on U.S. postage stamps. She is a part of who we are. But she may not last without your support.
A century of wind and water has taken its toll. No longer maintained by the federal government, the lighthouses now belong to us. If we don’t step up to repair and preserve them, they could disappear forever. But you can help. Support the Lighthouse Forever Fund and help our lighthouses keep watch … for us, and for future generations.
