Round Island, Michigan, USA

The Round Island Light, also known as the "Old Round Island Point Lighthouse" is a lighthouse  located on the west shore of Round Island in the shipping lanes of the Straits of Mackinac which connect Lake Michigan and Huron. It was deemed necessary because the island is a significant hazard to navigation in the straits, and was seen as an effective complement to the other lights in the area. Because of its color scheme and form - red stone base and wood tower - it has been likened to an old-fashioned schoolhouse.Ferries regularly pass it on their way to (and from) Mackinac Island, and it is a recognizable icon of the upper Great Lakes.
