Gull Rock Light Station

Gull Rock Light Station on a small, remote rock island in Lake Superior, Michigan, is now in the care of two nonprofit organizations, the Michigan Lighthouse Conservancy and Gull Rock Lightkeepers. After extensive restoration of the station building, it will become the home of a resident scholars program.
