The Grosse Ile Historical Society is sponsoring three tours of the Grosse Ile lighthouse on Sunday, Sept. 10, from noon to 4 p.m. Built in 1906, the lighthouse stands 40 feet tall. The octagonal white tower is beautiful; each face is sided with horizontal wood strips like clapboards on an old house. The interior is paneled with varnished Michigan pine, and a wooden circular staircase climbs to the light stanchion.
