The Chicago Harbor Lighthouse has to be one of the more photographed locations in the City of Chicago.
It’s located just off of the Eastern end of Navy Pier, which is Chicago’s most popular tourist destination.
In 2005 the Coast Guard offered to give the lighthouse to any group or organization who would be willing to take on the lighthouse and keep it up and running. Because of it’s location on the narrow Lake Michigan breakwater, no suitable offers were made and, after a lengthy transfer process, the Coast Guard offloaded the lighthouse to the City of Chicago.
