Huron County Lighthouses Guard the Shore

These videos of the Huron County Lighthouse tour were stumbled upon a couple of years ago and we were impressed with their high-quality production. However, I don’t think they were well promoted as they only have about 1,500 views.

The Huron County lighthouses videos were apparently part of a promotional campaign called LIVEHuron produced by Huron County Economic Development Corporation. If this is a promotional campaign then its current status is “SECRET”. Anyway, the videos are excellent.  Worth a look. If you think this is pretty good stuff please Like and Share.

Huron County’s Lighthouses

Officially there are only three lighthouses in the Upper Thumb.

  • Harbor Beach Lighthouse
  • Pointe Aux Barques Lifesaving Station and Lighthouse
  • Port Austin Reef Lighthouse

Only one of them is directly accessible from the land; Pointe Aux Barques Light. Both Harbor Beach and Port Austin light require a boat or ferry service. Pointe Aux Barques Lighthouse also offers tours during select weekends and days during the summer months.
