split rock lighthouse Anniversary For Split Rock Lighthouse

Happy 100th birthday Split Rock Lighthouse.

The towering landmark along Minnesota’s North Shore of Lake Superior will light its beacon Saturday _ 100 years to the day of its first beacon lighting.

Split Rock is celebrating its centennial this year with special beacon lightings and other events. The lighthouse was first lit on July 31, 1910, and stayed in service for 59 years until it was decommissioned in 1969.

The lighthouse has been restored to its 1920s appearance. The beacon will be lit at sunset on the first Friday of each month through November and also on Nov. 10, the anniversary of the Edmund Fitzgerald sinking.
