Beaver Island Harbor or the St. James Lighthouse was established in 1870. This conical brick tower stands 41 feet high, and was created for mariners to find refuge from hazardous weather. In 1956, the dwelling was torn down, and now only the tower stands to be photographed. The light is still active, and can be accessed by ferry from the mainland.
