At the turn of the 20th century, Lake Superior’s Minnesota shoreline was a dark & isolated place northeast of Two Harbors. As shipping traffic blossomed, so did concerns about this remote stretch of coastline. Mariners advocated for a lighthouse to help captains keep their bearings, but it took a catastrophic November storm, loss of lives & multiple vessels to convince the U.S. Congress to build what would become among the most recognized & beautiful landmarks on Lake Superior – The Split Rock Lighthouse.
With a clear-cut perch at the coast of Lake Superior, Split Rock Lighthouse produces over 1000-watts of power while lighting the way for each ship as they approach one of Minnesota’s finest landmarks.
