|South Bass Island Lighthouse|
Lighthouses have guided countless sailors safely to shore on moonless, starless nights and through all kinds of inclement weather. I love the history, mystery and romance of lighthouses and their keepers, told in the stories, which have been passed down through the years.

When most people think of lighthouses, they think of the ocean but my home state, Ohio, has over a dozen lighthouses along its northern border that rival any on the coasts.
Please enjoy this pictorial tour along the shores of Lake Erie and out to the northernmost islands of the state for a sampling of the more than a dozen lighthouses Ohio has to offer.
If you’re a lighthouse enthusiast like me, I hope these photos have enticed you to schedule a visit to Ohio.
