The Old Michigan City Lighthouse Museum building was originally constructed in 1858.
The ground level of Michigan City's East Pier Lighthouse is lined in brick and features porthole windows.
Michigan City East Pier lighthouse was built in 1904 on Lake Michigan.
Being a lighthouse keeper wasn't always romantic; strong storms sometimes made it nearly impossible to reach the light, which had to be tended manually.
A storm in 1913 destroyed 200 feet of the walkway to the lighthouse, forcing keepers to reach the light through this cable trolley system.
