   OPEN HOUSE

 

                            

Come visit us at the Annual Round Island Lighthouse Open House on the second Saturday of July. Transportation from Mackinac Island is available by private fare.

Round Island Lighthouse is located on Round Island, which is part of the Hiawatha National Forest. For more information, visit the United States Forest Service website.

2014 OPEN HOUSE: The 8th Annual Open House is scheduled for July 12, 2014. Please check back for more information.

ABOUT THE ANNUAL OPEN HOUSE: Since 2007, an annual Open House has been hosted at the lighthouse each summer. This year Round Island Lighthouse Preservation Society and Boy Scout Troop 323 of Freeland, Michigan  greeted over 200 people at the 7th Annual Open House. The scouts gave tours of the grounds, the Oil House and Privy, and of the 119 year old lighthouse. From 10AM to 4PM EST on July 13th, 2013, guests explored the historical lighthouse and learned about the history of the light station and the surrounding area.

PLEASE NOTE: In the event of bad weather, or waves that are too dangerous to navigate by our volunteers, we will have to cancel the open house, or close it down temporarily until conditions improve.  Sometimes a cancellation comes about abruptly with sudden changes in conditions.  We will do our best to convey a cancellation to the Mackinac Island Visitors Center and to the various ferry lines.
