Huron Harbor Lighthouse

Although I’ve passed through Huron many times over the years, I 'd never seen the city’s lighthouse until a few weeks ago.

It’s a strange-looking structure as lighthouses go and is said to be in the “art-deco” style. It’s been there since 1936 when it replaced an earlier one.

Here’s another vintage postcard view courtesy of Ebay.

The lantern room at the top of the lighthouse was removed in the early 1970s when a new automated beacon was installed. So it looks a little different now.

Here's what the lighthouse looked like last weekend (below). Note that like Lorain, Huron now has a huge Diked Disposal Facility constructed by the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers adjacent to its pier.

Looks too industrial.
