Originally located on the West pier of the
Portage River entrance between 1874 and 1952, this two-story structure was
relocated to B-pier on what was then D.B. Jeremy's & Sons Marina, who were
contracted to perform the removal.
In the fall of 2011 Brands' Marina
made the decision to donate the lighthouse to the city of Port Clinton. While
we're sorry to see it go, we feel it will be of greater benefit to the city if a
project was undertaken to fully restore the lighthouse and place it in a more
publicly accessible location.
top portion of the lighthouse was removed late
in 2011 and taken to the woodworking shop of a
local craftsman who, in conjunction with city
efforts, will work towards restoring the
lighthouse to its original majesty.
The base of the lighthouse
currently sits at the entrance of Brands'
Drydock, 315 W. Lakeshore Dr., where work on it
can be viewed by the general public.
