History of the Fourteen Foot Shoal Lighthouse

This lighthouse never had a keeper as it was an early experiment in automation. The lighthouse keeper from the Poe Reef Light could control this lighthouse using radio beacon. This picture was taken using a 1000mm telephoto lens from the Cheboygan Crib Light.

Directions: From the Town of Cheboygan, make a left onto North Huron Street. Follow this to the end, it will lead to a park with the Cheboygan Crib Lighthouse in it. If you look just off shore you will see the Fourteen Foot Shoal Lighthouse.
