17155. (photo) Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse, Michigan c.1972. Clear, close, original 8” x 10” press photo shows excellent detail of the “old” lighthouse and keeper’s house in 1972. Mackinaw Point marks the narrowest part of the Straits of Mackinac at the junction of Lake Michigan and Lake Huron. Founded in 1889, the Old Mackinac Point Light Station was in operation from 1890 until 1957. Mackinac Island State Park Commission purchased Old Point Mackinac Lighthouse in 1960 and incorporated it into Michilmackinac State Park. After $70,000 in restoration work, the lighthouse was opened in 1972 as the focal point of Michilmackinac Maritime Park. Budget constraints and falling attendance led to the closure of the lighthouse in 1990. Photo is b/w and includes date and identification on back. Dated September 3, 1972. Clear, close view, great detail. (VG+). $32.
