Nice information posted around the light house, time line was very nice. You can not go in the light house but it is still a pretty site to see and learn about.

We followed our GPS easily to the lighthouse. The picnic area was busy as was the playground. The lighthouse is gorgeous. Across the water you can also see the North Pier Light.

This lighthouse is located near a city park. There is a lot of history posted, including a list of Lighthouse Keepers through the years. A quick stop along your way is worth it.

I have been to Erie almost every year for the past 12 or so years and I never knew this existed. It was easy to find although off the normal beaten path. Not much to do but great to see and take a few pictures...More

Visiting this lighthouse on a foggy day was a treat - presented it in a different light, for sure. Definitely worth a visit, as the first lighthouse on the Great Lakes.
