The Michigan Old Mackinac Lighthouse was built in 1892. This Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse housed lighthouse keepers and their families for sixty-five years. The Michigan Old Mackinac Lighthouse was decommissioned in 1957 as the lights from the Mackinac Bridge rendered the lighthouse useless. The Mackinac Island State Park Commission purchased the lighthouse and its surrounding property in 1960, incorporating the lighthouse into the Michilimackinac Maritime Park.

Beginning in 2000, the lighthouse has been restored to its 1910 appearance. The lighthouse opened for tours in 2004. Guided tours take approximately fifteen minutes. Guides dressed in period costumes lead the tower tours. The tower climb consists of fifty-one steps and an eleven-rung ladder. Suggestions for the tour include wearing sturdy shoes (no flip-flops), keeping your hands free for climbing the ladder, being physically fit for the climb, and turning off your cell phone. Children must be over four feet tall. No pets are allowed on the climb.
