Pere Marquette Park, Muskegon Michigan October 2019
Lighthouse Fun Fact: In 1858, the widow of William Monroe, the Muskegon South Pierhead Light’s keeper, took over his duties when he passed away. Jemima Monroe was the tower keeper, while raising her two children, for ten years until her resignation. She is still Muskegon’s only female lighthouse keeper. The state of Michigan boasts the highest number of female lighthouse keepers in the US.
You can tour this lighthouse, but we did not. I'm not sure that was available at the time we were there.
