If you've ever wanted to own a lighthouse, now is the time. Three Michigan lighthouses are currently for sale. Get our your checkbooks and start bidding. There are a few strings attached, though. They must be bought by a nonprofit organization, you do not get ownership or rights to any land under the lighthouse, and you are required to maintain the lighthouse.
The current bids are $5,000 for two of the lighthouses and $10,000 for the other. One is in lake Michigan: Ile aux Galets which is between the shore and Beaver Island. The other two are in lake Huron: Gravelly Shoal which is 5 miles from Aux Gres Twp, and Spectacle Reef, which is 11 miles from Bois Blanc Island.
