South Manitou Island Light

South Manitou Island Light

Located in Leelanau county, southeast of south Manitou islands. Strategically located off the mainland coast of Michigan, the Manitou Islands formed the western side of what was known as the "Manitou Passage." By traveling through this passage, vessels were able to reduce the distance between ports on the southern shores into the Straits of Mackinac by sixty miles, as compared to the trip around the islands on the lake side
