16128. (photo) Lighthouse, Lake Michigan by Father Brana Kevich c.1990. Clear, close original 8” x 10” press photo shows great detail of the 40ft white stucco lighthouse in Grafton by Father Brana Kevich. In 1981, Brana Kevich, an ordained Serbian Orthodox priest, and his wife Neva built a lighthouse home on a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan to fulfill a personal quest to own and live in a lighthouse. The lighthouse, known as Kevich Lighthouse, stands just fifty-feet-tall, but has a focal plane of 163 feet, giving it the distinction of having the highest focal plane of any active lighthouse on the Great Lakes – only Boyer Bluff Light is higher. The U.S. Coast Guard certified Kevich Lighthouse as a Class II Private Aid to Navigation in 1990. Clear and close view. Dated February 15, 1990. Great view. (VG+). $28.
