Peche Island Old Rear Range Light

"Marine City, Michigan"


Built: 1908
Decommissioned: 1982

"The Peche Island Old Rear Range Light was originally built in 1908 on Peche Island, at the entrance to the Detroit River. In the early 1980s it was in danger of collapsing, so the coast guard built a new light on the site and moved this lighthouse to the Marine City Nautical Park, on the shores of the St. Clair River.
