Featured Project: South Manitou Island
Location: South Manitou Island, MI
June 2022-May 2023
Mihm Enterprises were contracted to provide access and rehabilitate the lighthouse Complex on South Manitou Island. South Manitou Island is part of the greater Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lake Shore. The Park is extremely rich with History and South Manitou is no exception. Attractions include shipwrecks, camping, scenic lookouts, the lighthouse complex and many other buildings.
South Manitou Island was settled in the mid- 1830’s to mainly provide cord wood to fuel steamships. The island included a blacksmith shop, Grocery Store and farm. The 100 ft. tall Lighthouse standing today was built in 1871 and was operational until 1958. Ships have found safety here over the years on more the one occasion and the island is still considered to be a safe open water port for ships caught in stormy seas.
We were thrilled to be a part of this project and hope the island will be enjoyed by many for years to come.
