Poe Reef Lighthouse

The lovely Poe Reef Lighthouse is located in Lake Huron at the east end of South Channel between Bois Blanc Island and the mainland of the Lower Peninsula of Michigan, about 6 miles east of Cheboygan. It is not named after the Poe we all probably think of at first, but rather, Orlando M. Poe, a lighthouse chief engineer. The Poe Reef Lighthouse went into service on August 15, 1929 and is comprised of a 71-foot tall white square tower on a concrete crib. Starting bids begin at $10,000.
