At the Two Harbors Lighthouse, on the North Shore of Lake Superior in Minnesota
Located on a rocky point between Agate and Burlington Bays, the Two Harbors Lighthouse provides a front row seat to Lake Superior!
The Two Harbors Light Station is the oldest, continuously operating lighthouse on the North Shore of Lake Superior. It’s beacon has been guiding ships in and out of the ore docks at Agate Bay since 1892!
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Two Harbors Light Station is one of the three historic sites operated by the Lake County Historical Society. The light station remains largely unchanged since its construction over 130 years ago. Funds to preserve the lighthouse site for future generations are generated through reservations at the Bed & Breakfast, memberships, donations and admissions to the Lighthouse Museum.
With a mission to collect, preserve, and share the stories of Lake County, Minnesota the Lighthouse Museum narrates the rich history of shipping on Lake Superior.
Lightkeepers were stationed at the Two Harbors Light Station until 1981 when the light became automated from the Duluth Station. Guests at the Bed & Breakfast enjoy exclusive access to the lighthouse grounds after the museum closes and can enjoy a fire in the outdoor fire pit overlooking both bays.
The perfect gift is a relaxing getaway along Lake Superior’s North Shore just minutes north of Duluth in Two Harbors, Minnesota.
Guests learn about the history of the lighthouse and proceeds are poured back into the restoration & maintenance of this historic treasure.
