Above, a view from the observation deck of the East Breakwater Lighthouse is shown. On Monday, the light was opened for a brief period to the public. The purpose of the open house was for the city and Michigan Lighthouse Conservancy to evaluate the structure before commiting to restore and maintain it. If the city decides the project is too costly, the light will be put up for auction. At right, MLC representative Jeff Shook, far right, along with members of the U.S. Coast Guard, stand on the light’s deck during the open house.
