The day after the tornado's hit Northern Ohio the sky was beautiful blue and the sun shone brightly. Though the air was cool, the sun was warm. Marblehead Lighthouse was built in 1821 with a 50 foot beacon. In 1903 15 additional feet were added making it's beacon 65 feet. The Marblehead Lighthouse was built by William Kelley from limestone and became an Ohio State Park in 1998.
Here on Lake Erie it attracts visitors from all over. Lake Erie is the 12th largest freshwater lake in The World, is the most shallow of the 5 Great Lakes, measures 210 miles long, 57 miles wide and has approximately 871 miles of shore land to enjoy. That's a lot to explore folks.
Marblehead Lighthouse is the oldest continuously operated lighthouse in The Great Lakes, and one of the most photographed scene's in the area. Come spend the day walking the shoreline with views of Lake Erie, Sandusky Bay, Kelleys Island, and South Bass Island. You can even see the rides at Cedar Point from your vantage point here at Marblehead Lighthouse State Park.
There's picnic facilities for families of all ages to enjoy. On week days and the 2nd Saturday of the month you can take a guided tour of the lighthouse.
Though I've stopped here at Marblehead Lighthouse multiple times, I've not yet been able to take the tour; so it's still on my list of things to do while touring and enjoying The Port Clinton area.
