The Whitefish Point Light Station. The iron skeletal framework was designed to relieve stress due to very high winds. It is located on Lake Superior's Whitefish Bay in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. It is home to The Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum and has many artifacts including the bell from the SS Edmund Fitzgerald which was recovered in 1995.
