Lighthouse summary

Charity Island Light is a lighthouse on Big Charity Island in Lake Huron just off the coast of Au Gres, Northern Michigan. Experience the quiet peace of island living and the mystique of staying at the Charity Island Lightkeepers Home, which is located next to the lighthouse which was built in 1857.

 

The island was named by the lake mariners for its location, placed "through the charity of God". Charity Island is the largest island in Saginaw Bay in the Michigan waters of Lake Huron. For many years the island has provided a lighthouse for navigational aid and a safe harbor for those sailing these waters.
