This lighthouse is located on Lake Superior
in Two Harbors, Minnesota.
It was built in 1892 from
red bricks and the tower
is 49.6 feet tall.
It is the oldest operating lighthouse in America.
Three lighthouse keepers were assigned each day to
keep it lit.
Looking up at the light.
The attached light keeper residence
is now a bed and breakfast.
Yes, it is said to be haunted
by the wife of one of the keepers.
The story tells of how much she
loved it here and never wanted to leave.
Her ashes are scattered all about the property
and it is reported that she is often
heard and felt in the rooms.
She never does any harm though.
She just doesn't want to leave.

A look down the staircase.
I adore the traditional red and white.

A small peak inside.
The keepers journal.
This was one of the highlights of the trip.
I took many more photos but
felt these were the best representation.
