Port Clinton Light Station, Port Clinton, Ohio. Built in 1896, it was one of the earliest lighthouses on Lake Erie. The light house used to stand at the foot of the Portage River. It was restored and moved to its present location along the shore of Lake Erie in 2016. This view is across a small pond. Lake Erie can be glimpsed just beyond the lighthouse.
This lighthouse is only 20 feet tall. It is called a pepperpot a/k/a pepper pot or salt shaker lighthouse because its shape resembles a salt or pepper shaker with a square tapered base, a single gallery, and a square lantern. It is a rare style in the US, but is more common in Canada and Scotland.
I have more images from this lighthouse as well as other Great Lakes lighthouses along Lake Erie including the Marblehead, Vermillion and Huron lighthouses either in my portfolio or coming soon.
