Built in 1851 to replace the Great Lakes first lightship, the Waugoshance lighthouse was abandoned in 1912 after a new lighthouse was built on White Shoal, located 30 miles north of Charlevoix off the end of Waugoshance Point in Wilderness Park. Join Terry Pepper as he takes us on an amazing and far-reaching journey of discovery as we learn just what happened to this historic lighthouse from both above and below the waters of Lake Michigan.
