Illinois Lighthouses

There are several different lighthouses in the state of Illinois. Calumet Harbor, Chicago Harbor, and Little Fort are three of the seven lighthouses that can be seen in Illinois. These are all very important locations, because they all mark something different.

The first lighthouse in Illinois was actually built in the year of 1832 on the mainland, in Chicago. It was built right at the mouth of the river. One of the buildings actually houses a fog horn, and on the other side is a boathouse. The lighthouse that stands in Chicago is 48 feet tall.
