|"New" Presque Isle lighthouse was built in 1870. It is about a mile
from the 1840 light.
The Presque Isle Township Museum Society maintains a separate 1905 lighthouse
keeper's building. There is no fee to visit the museum, though donations
are wekcin. and a gift shop in the the house attached to the light. I was
getting hungry and the view from the other light hadn't been that impressive,
so I skipped the 110 step climb to the top.
The light at Presque Isle Station was automated in 1970.

Returning to US-23, I circled Grand Lake, looking for a restaurant the
lady at the Old light had told me about, but couldn't find it and decided
to head back north on US 23 to the other one she told me about. Kelly's
2nd Venture Inn was on 23, just south of Roger's City. A small town bar
serving inexpensive good food. I had their only fresh fish, deep fried
Walleye. Pretty good, as was the clam chowder that was the soup of the
