Overview

Lighthouses of Southwest Michigan ( Images of America Series) by Susan Roark Hoyt


As the coastal towns of southwestern Michigan began to grow in the 1800s, commerce and shipping traffic flourished, making way for the development of lighthouses to ensure vessels' safe passage into port. Lighthouses of Southwest Michigan takes readers on an exciting journey through the history of seven such structures, from the St. Joseph, South Haven, and Kalamazoo River Lights to the Holland Harbor, Grand Haven, Muskegon, and White River Lights. Through a rare collection of archival photographs, this book explores the legacy of these fascinating structures, the people who maintained them, and the ships and communities they protected.
