Discovering Michigan’s Offshore Lights

Thunder Bay Island Light Station

On Tuesday, March 20, SHPO architect Bryan Lijewski, consulting architect Michelle Smay from Smay Trombley Architecture, and Susan Skibbe from the Thunder Bay Island Lighthouse Preservation Society (TBILPS) presented the Thunder Bay Island Light Station Historic Structure Report (HSR) to the public.  It was an excellent event held at the Alpena Township Hall.  The Michigan Offshore Lights Historic Structure Report and Public Education Project is funded by a National Maritime Heritage Program grant through the National Park Service, and a Michigan Lighthouse Assistance Program (MLAP) grant through the SHPO, Michigan State Housing Development Authority.  What’s next…replacement of the Fog Signal Building roof with partial funding provided by an MLAP grant!
