MANITOWOC (WLUK) -- High winds and waves have washed a lighthouse in Lake Michigan in Manitowoc. The U. S. Coast Guard says the South Pier Light's 20-foot-tall fiberglass tower, on the south side of the Manitowoc Breakwater, fell into the lake around 8:30 a. m. All that is left is the concrete base....

Yesterday morning the gravestone for South Haven's first lighthouse keeper William P. Bryan and his wife was installed at Lakeview Cemetery after their grave site remained unmarked for 125 years. The Museum & Historical Association of South Haven cannot thank Filbrandt Family Funeral Home enough for making this long due recognition possible!

Join the Michigan Maritime Museum and the Historical Association of South Haven on Saturday July 28th in honoring William Bryan and our longest serving lighthouse keeper Captain James Donahue at the Memorial Service at Lakeview Cemetery. Then be sure to join us afterwards at the historic Lightkeeper's House for an open house, exhibit, and free ice cream social!

Here it is friends, my latest short film! "ICE AGE - South Haven". It was incredible to see all of the ice build up on the beach and surrounding the pier, and to be able to film it and see it from angles that I wouldn't be able to otherwise, just made it that much more rewarding! So I hope you all enjoy it! Feel free to Like and Share, and let me know what you think! :D

Jim Ollgaard and I made a quick trip to the South Haven Light this afternoon to check for graffiti and found only 2 spots where someone felt it was important for others to know that they had been there. Washed it off and hope that it remains clear for a while again. Also the city has completed the paving around brick pavers so if you bought one stop down and take a look. There are still a number of them yet to be installed so yours may not be there if you bought after the end of August 2016. The pavers are still available and will be installed as we get additional orders. southhavenlight.org

It just never stops. I wonder if the people that deface the Light would like to see it on their home?
