The Livingstone Light

Tucked at the other end of Belle Isle is the Livingstone Lighthouse.  I've covered it here before, so I will not go into much detail.
 It was designed by Albert Kahn.
 It is one of over 100 lighthouses in Michigan.
 It is the only lighthouse constructed out of marble.
 I don't think it's an active aid to navigation but it is one of the few lighthouses dedicated to a person.
 William S. Livingstone was very influential in the development of shipping on the Great Lakes.
 If you get a chance, you should go see it.
It's well worth the walk.
