Very beautiful lighthouse with a little gift shop. They have a big mirror you can stand in front of and take a selfie. If you are in the area check it out!

This beautiful lighthouse is unique for lighthouses along this coastline, made of steel instead of brick like most of the others. The museum is very informative and has lots of history about the light station. One of the things I found very interesting was that the original light was much shorter, they built a new base section and lifter the original light on top. That is why there is a seam in the middle. The upper section is the original light. If you sign a waiver, you can climb to the top of the lighthouse for some beautiful views.

I stopped here as the sun was setting. It's located right off North Wahl Ave, which is were I parked and walked the grounds. It's well lit at night and for those who are fairly active the Oak leaf trail runs right behind it and has some grand displays of nature and man made structures. Between the water tower, lakeside paths and the lighthouse i was reminded of Chicago but the scale is much easier to enjoy. Beautiful area, would be a great spot to spend a day!

I'm glad you found us! Please come inside for a tour, to see our great maritime museum and to climb to the top of the tower for a great view! See our Web site northpointlighthouse.org for hours and more information. Lake Park is so beautiful - it was designed by the famous landscape architect, Frederick Law Olmsted, who designed Central Park in NYC among many famous designs.
