Fun at the lighthouse

Every weekend, now through Christmas, the Fort Gratiot Lighthouse will not only be open from 11-5 Saturdays and Sunday, but on Saturday night's from 5-8pm they will be offering candlelight tours of Michigan's oldest operating lighthouse. Also, this weekend, come out to the light station for their "Holiday Enchantment", where the Green Barn Winery of Wadhams will be presenting their Fort Gratiot Lightstation Blueberry Wine. You can also pickup some local souvenirs at the newly redone gift shop, which has been restored recently to historical specifications. Besides the other holiday fun taking place at the lightstation, Susan Bennett, Executive Director for the Port Huron Museum who manages the property, says you can also pick-up a wish list which you can fill out and their staff and volunteers will help come true. Better get out to the lightstation while you can, because it will be closed for three months after Christmas.
