I have been to Split Rock lighthouse several times over the years. I remember coming here as a child when my family camped in the area. The lighthouse is built high on a cliff along the North Shore overlooking Lake Superior. Built in the late 1800's it remained active until the early 1960's when radar took over as a means of guiding shipping vessels on these waters. I think it is one of the most beautiful lighthouses. Thankfully, the state of Minnesota manages and maintains the property as a state park and preserves the history of this truly special place for the future.
