I worked as a tour guide for two summers at the Umpqua River Lighthouse in Oregon. This opportunity enabled me to learn more about this lighthouse than any of the others I've seen. Although I have personally visited 302 lighthouses in the United States and three Provinces in Canada, the Umpqua River Lighthouse has special meaning for me.
The Muskegon South Pier Lighthouse is located in the inner harbor of Muskegon, MI. The original lighthouse was built in 1852 and replaced by the one above. The conical bright red steel tower was completed in 1903 and stands 48 feet hight. I visited this lighthouse in 1998.
