Since 1889, the Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse has marked the point where Lake Michigan and Lake Huron joined. Back in the day, the passage through the Straits of Mackinac was considered treacherous due to not only the predisposition to fog, but because of the bustling channel, navigation of the turn, and the sandbars creating shallower waters. The tower nowadays is a historic marker and picture destination. Those who visit us on Mackinac Island which is also listed as a National Historic Landmark, often make their way or came from visiting the Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse.
