Shoreline has eroded within 45 feet of a historic lighthouse at Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore.
Lee Jameson is the Facility Manager at Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore. He said the lighthouse was built in 1871.
“We have an active volunteer group that donates thousands of hours annually that includes descendants of lighthouse keepers so this is a very meaningful historic landmark to a lot of folks here.”
Jameson said roughly 800 feet of shoreline have been impacted.
