6/10 - McGulpin Point Light relighting - Photos courtesy Great Lakes Lighthouse Keepers Association

New replica lantern atop McGulpin Point tower

One of the helicopters from Coast Guard Air Station Traverse City circled the lighthouse to signal the beginning of the ceremonies

An overall shot of the crowd of approximately 1,000 people who attended the relighting ceremonies

Members of the Little Traverse Bay Band of Odawa Indians played their large tribal drum as part of the invocation ceremony.

Dr. William Anderson, retired Director of the Michigan Department of History, Arts and Libraries (l) and Frank Ettawagashik, Tribal Chairman of the Little Traverse Bay Band of Odawa Indians (r) were two of the featured speakers during the event.

Poet Mary Stewart Adams recites her updated version of Edgar Guest’s poem “The Lighthouse Keeper Wonders” which she wrote specially for the event.

The line to climb the tower lead from outside the summer kitchen door through the dwelling to the foot of the spiral stairs. Although the wait was almost 90 minutes, everybody was happy to see the view from the lantern when they finally reached the top.

GLLKA Executive Director Terry Pepper awaits the arrival of the next group of five to climb the stairs and take in the newly opened view of the Straits of Mackinac. Pepper worked the day in the lantern, where he recounted the story of how the new lantern was fabricated and installed on the tower.

On Saturday evening, McGulpin Point lighthouse casts its guiding light across The Straits of Mackinac for the first time since December 15, 1906. See McGulpin Point for additional information.
