The Marblehead Lighthouse is one of the oldest types of lighthouse that is still continuing its operations right on the Great Lakes. It has safely guided a lot of sailors traveling to the rocky shores of its peninsula since the year of 1822. It was in 1819 when the need for its construction came to the minds of the 15th US Congress to guide the sailors traveling along the Great Lakes.
Its beacon started becoming automated by 1958 to make the job of the Coast Guard way easier. It was also the time when it was given a fresh coat of paint since its original finish became tattered due to natural causes of weather and time. Now it continues to shine to give protection to boaters from possible danger of the unpredictable waters of Lake Erie.
