Geocache Description:

Sturgeon Point Lighthouse - Harrisville, MI

This cache is dedicated to ABXGuy's series of Michigan's scenic and beautiful lighthouses along the miles and miles of Great Lakes shoreline. Which have been archived.

This is a virtual cache; there is no cache container. To claim credit for this cache visit the lighthouse at the coordinates above and take a picture of yourself and your GPSr in front of the lighthouse with your GPSr clearly visible. When logging this cache include the photo with your log entry.

The other way to log this cache is to answer the following questions and e-mail me the answers at, and to make sure that I get your answers.

  • What is the year that lighthouse construction began? Found above the doorway to the tower.
  • Beginning in 1907, when was the Old Bailey School House no longer used?
  • What is the name of the fishing boat that you see on the left as you head toward the lighthouse?

Any "Found" log entry without the proper photo or answer e-mailed to me will be deleted.

The gift shop and buildings are open from 10:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M., 7 days a week from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Open weekends until Mid-October. The grounds are open year round. Feel free to visit the gift shop and museum, you can also visit the Old Bailey School House that was moved here from Mikado Township in 1998, having been originally built in 1907.

If there are any problems with your log entry, I will e-mail you post-haste. If you want to receive documentation / pictures of this site, and have found this cache, send me your e-mail address. Please note that I am horrible with my response time to e-mails. I do save all responses and when I feel like it, I send out reassurance that your log entry is good and further information about the area. So don't be surprised to get an e-mail from me several weeks to several months from the time that you found the cache. If you want more information and I haven't responded to you fast enough or at all, just send me a nag e-mail about the Lighthouse. I will bump you up on my priorities list. Thank you for your patience.

This is a very historic site. Take your time here and walk the grounds and read the plaques by all the unique items. There's an old boat, moorings, an anchor and the like around this lighthouse.
