      Lighthouse Tour Grosse Ile

      On Sunday, September 8th, from Noon to 3:00 PM the Grosse Ile Historical Society is sponsoring four tours on the hour of the Grosse Ile lighthouse. Built in 1906, the stately lighthouse stands 40 feet tall. The octagonal white tower is beautiful, each face is sided with horizontal wood strips like clapboards on an old house. The interior is paneled with varnished Michigan pine, and a wooden circular staircase climbs to the light stanchion.    The tours will originate at the Depot Museum located on the southwest corner of Grosse Ile Parkway and East River Road. A bus (there is no parking at the lighthouse) will take participants past the historic homes district to the lighthouse for the tour and then return to the Depot Museum. The tours are limited to 96 participants, ten years of age or older. There is no handicap access to the lighthouse. Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your scheduled tour. The tour price is $10 for Society members, $15 for non-members.  (Members who use Eventbrite for ticketing will receive a $5 refund at the event.) Please note that the noon and one o'clock tours are SOLD OUT.
