Michigan boasts more than 3000 miles of shoreline and more lighthouses than any other state in the union and Benzie County is home to two iconic lighthouses. The Frankfort North Breakwater Light was established in 1932, is a pyramidal square steel tower, stands 67 feet high and has a fourth-order Fresnel lens. It is now owned by the City Of Frankfort. A few miles north along the beach is the iconic Point Betsie Lighthouse. It is a cylindrical tower and attached dwelling originally built on the point in 1858. In 2004, title was transferred from the Coast Guard and the property leased to The Friends of Point Betsie Lighthouse. The fourth-order Fresnel lens used in the tower is on display inside the lighthouse and the assistant keeper’s apartment is now renovated and can be rented weekly . I can see the Frankfort Light from my house and Pt Betsie is only 10 minutes away so I can pop out to either one at short notice if the weather conditions look interesting. Pt Betsie is very popular and accessible so I prefer to go there when I feel few others may be there.
